Kid’s art…I love it. I really do.
I loved it even before I had children of my own to knock it out for me.
That being said my mini artists make Alot of art. I mean a lot. My husband prints and sells tattoo sheets of his designs through ebay. When they don’t print out corectly the girls have a load of scrap paper at their disposal.
This is awesome and they love it but they go through it really fast. My daughters knock out stacks and stacks of pictures at a setting.
I was getting a little nervous about what to do with it all. I love the scan it into a computer option but I have limited space on our family computer.
I also love the artwork as wrapping paper idea but that comes more in handy during Christmas than it does now.
Obviously,I will have to get rid of some of the pictures but all of the work I’ve been doing on my art journals recently gave me an idea with what to do with the ones that I keep.
There are loads of books you could use for this.
You might chose to alter an old book,an old textbook,a composition notebook, an old board book your kids have outgrown and over-loved or you could use a travel guide the way I did. You could even make your own book with recycled elements as seen here.
No matter what you choose it’s a good way to keep some of your child’s artwork together for yourself.
It also makes a good keepsake to give to aunts.uncles or grandparents.
Here is a video of the two art books I made to send to my daughter’s grandmother.
I’m currently working on a couple to keep and one to give to my mother.
How do you store or didplay your child’s artwork? I’d love to know or see if you want to share a link.
