    Default When your child makes things for you...

    What on earth do you do!?

    I love the sentiment, but what am I supposed to do with that wet glob of play dough? Or that picture with glitter glue that will never dry (is it just me or does anyone else's glitter glue never seem to dry?) or that gigantic box construction that I can't seem to fit on my mantelpiece?

    I love that my children love me!

    I take photos of my favourite things the kids make or draw and anything super special I keep, however all the other 'treasures' I keep for a week or so and then they mysteriously vanish and by then the kids have forgotten about them.

    Bless their cotton socks!

    We have a lot of artwork around the house, framed, photos, collages etc.
    I also have art folders for each child.
    We use paintings as wrapping paper. We use old drawings as cards.

    Yep, photos of everything here too. I do photo books for both dd & ds each year so the memories always pop up in there😊

    I have a seperate book going for all the artwork dd brings home from kindy so that I have a permanent record of the 500,000,000 rainbows she paints for me

    I do keep some very special pieces still

    Yep we do this too. Frame a lot of stuff, lots go on the pinup board too. The fridge is for the rotating artwork that DD makes when shes bored.
    They each have a big plastic container that lives in the garage too of artwork and other creations

    Scrap bits of paper with scribbles end up in the bin though
