What To Do With Your Child’s Artwork

One of the things I always dreaded about the school year was the inevitable onslaught of paper! You want to save every project your child makes at school & at home but what to do with it all? Here are some creative ways to preserve these precious memories:


Shutterfly & Snapfish are two we have used. Photograph each of your child’s art pieces with your phone & upload images to create holiday cards, mugs, water bottles, pillows, coasters etc. The possibilities are huge!

Make a photo book of all of your child’s art at the end of each year using one of many online vendors such as Snapfish, Shutterfly, even Walgreens!

Once you have photographed the art, you could use a template or app to create a custom collage with the images or, if you aren’t that tech savvy, many places carry large frames with places for many photos in a collage fashion, such as this one from Target

Minted also has some shelves specifically for displaying art, like The Little Artist Shelf

Lil’ Davinci makes some awesome art frames that open up while hanging to make it easy to change out the art inside. These are available many places such as Amazon and even houzz.
