Kids Art Work; 3 solutions to help with all that paper!

I ♥ MY KIDS and I think their artwork is GREAT, but what to do with all that paper?  I have found 3 solutions that I have been using for a while to display and store their work.

1. In our mudroom, we have a special area for the kids coats and backpacks.  Above that, I found these really cool storage frames at Target.  You can find them here.  They open up to store art pieces and close with a window for displaying the current project.  I bought one for each child and put them up on the wall above their coats.  That way they get to see them every day and their projects don't have to invade our refrigerator space.

2. Another solution is an iPhone app which I talked about in my Top 10 FAVORITE iPhone apps blog post.  You can catch up on that one here.  The app is called ArtKive.  It allows you to store photos of your child's work and then when ready it compiles it into a nice hard bound book for purchase.  It literally took just minutes and I received my first one by mail last week. I just LOVE it!

3. The third way I organize the kids artwork is each child is given one “treasure box” which fits under their bed.  When it is full, it is time to sort through and pick out only the most sentimental items.  The kids help in this process and that way they are keeping what is most meaningful to them.
