Do you have mountains of kid-made art your littles bring home from daycare or school? If you answered “yes,” you aren’t alone.

According to a new survey from OnePoll conducted on behalf of Canvaspop, the average American mom gets 45 pieces of homemade art as gifts from their kiddos. The poll, which included 2,000 moms, revealed mothers reported getting an average of six drawings, four finger paintings and four watercolor paintings as holiday presents over the course of their mom-ing life.

If you’re into displaying your child’s mini masterpieces, you’re in good company. A whopping 76 percent of moms surveyed reported framing their kiddo’s artwork.

Even though moms are obviously into framing kid-created art, the survey’s stats also show parents want more than finger paintings and collages on their walls. Sixty-seven percent of the moms surveyed wish they have more photos of their fam to hang on the walls too.

Brittany Norris, Brand Marketing Manager for Canvaspop, said in a press release, “Moms are amazing about making sure that their family’s biggest moments are captured.” Norris added, “That’s why it’s important to take the time to go through your favorite photos and print the ones that say thank you for always being there.”
