If you have kids you’ve probably been faced with the dilemma of what to do with all the art that comes home. I get it. Each piece is special but you can’t possibly keep everything can you? No. But here are a few simple ways you hold onto those memories without filling your attic with boxes.
1. Frame it. When those priceless items come through your door, celebrate them by showing them off. If they are not frame worthy then ask yourself why are you keeping them?
2. Take a photo with your kid holding the picture. I think this is the best of both worlds. You can keep an image of the art along with a picture of your child when they created it.
3. Take a photo of the art and create an art book: This is what I am doing with my kids’ art. When it comes home I take a picture of it. When I get the chance I upload to Snapfish. At the end of the year I create an album that they send to me in the mail. It’s compact and has all their art in it for the year with titles and notes.
