    Default Questionable 'art' your kids bring home

    I thought it might be a bit of fun to share the 'interesting' items your child brings home from daycare/kindy/school.

    Whilst I fully support and appreciate the need for creative play, I have found over the years that some thing my DS brings home are (for lack of a better word) total cr@p! And then there's the question of what to do with it? How long to hold onto it? How to dispose of it in a ninja stealth like manner without them noticing?

    Please post photos if you have them! This is all in good fun

    Some things that come to mind are:
    - clay sculptures that resemble turds
    - paper with bark and dirt stuck on it
    - bits of rubbish all stuck together into a large hideous unidentifiable object
    - 'presents' ie bits of rubbish wrapped up and sticky taped into a parcel

    What are some of your child's 'creations' you'd rather they left at daycare/school?

    After a few months of kinder, and piles of paper piling up in my kitchen (ie. a piece of paper with a single blue pencil line down the middle), I started sneaking them into the recycling after dark

    Sent from my SM-N910G using The Bub Hub mobile app

    DS1 once bought home a drawing of a 'rocket' that resembled a vagina.

    Ds was so proud of a fish he had drawn....seriously, it looked like a penis. That one stayed on the fridge for a few months.

    I write the date in the ones I want to keep and others do their time on the fridge and then usually get folded and tucked inside the junk mail in the recycling.

    I got caught out once when the wind must have caught one when the truck came as we were walking to the park and I hear "mummy, why is my drawing in the gutter?".

    DD2 has recently started drawing us as a family... Except everyone is just a circle.

    Yesterday she was so proud and gave me a picture she'd drawn of me. I looked like a vagina.

    Dd1 and dd2 have both brought home plenty of creations that have seen the bottom of the wheelie bin but l've kept a lot from over the years but just the best lol. I still have artwork from daycare but they put those masterpieces in scrapbooks for us to keep. Occasionally when cleaning their bookshelf out, the kids like to show me their artworks from when thwy were little.

    I have 3 in preschool and one in 1st grade. I got sick of keeping up with the junk pictures. The nice ones go in the filing cabinet, everything else goes in the kitchen bin. Honestly these kids barely pay attention to what I'm doing, I could put their whole bag in the bin without them noticing haha
