Keeping the memories of your kid’s art

I am writing today, as I am always trying to find new ways of displaying and keeping a record of my son’s art work and general work over time.

I would love more ideas from folks. Please share them – I will try them out and update the post to show you how they worked 🙂

I have tried two things so far:

  1. Frame your favorite pieces in bright colors. You can change them out if you use a standard frame size. I do all the prep work for the art work but I take it to the local framing shop for the class and frame. Below are two pieces, my son’s first at home project – a turkey feather collage and the second a colored in shark, these are hung in my son’s playroom.

       

  2. I think my son’s art work is a great present for his grandparents, so I make an album up for my parents every Christmas. I also make one up for us to keep so that we can have memories for him when he is older.

        

So, one other idea I was thinking was making plates, cups or fabric out of some of his drawings. Here’s a piece, I think, would be great for that.

  

Here’s a useful blog, I found, on www.parents.com. What are some of your ideas?
