    Default Children's Artwork

    How do you store your children's artwork?

    I don't keep it all (I'd have a bookcase full if I did lol), but I have a few special bit and pieces and I'm at a loss of how to store it?

    What do you do?

    Any done on A4 paper can be put in folders with those plastic sleeves. I like them because they can be put back to back, or if both sides are used you can put them in singularly and see both sides. Any other art work can be put in scrap books (you know the ones kids use to draw in, not the album type) and any extras I use for wrapping paper or send to family.

    I take pictures of them & add them to scrapbooks with any details ie what it is, why it was done etc. Handy for 3d artwork.

    I saw a tv show once where they kept a few select pieces to display and took photos of all the rest to put in a photobook on their coffee table. I quite liked the idea as I am not into keeping alot of "stuff" in our tiny unit.

    I use a plastic tub for any special bits noting on the back the child and date and perhaps what it supposed to be according to my child!

    Big paintings (heaps come home from Kindy) are kept and used for wrapping paper. We have allot up on the walls as I love seeing them all around. Any scribbles and general stuff are discretely put in the recycling bin - they love drawing and colouring in so they can easily do 5 each a day! Of course lots of pictures given to family and friends to.

    I have heard of people taking photos and putting them on a digital photo frame for display..... I love this idea and while I have taken a few photos I'm yet to actually put them on my currently unused digital frame!
