So much art comes home from preschool and elementary school. SO much. Then there are the masterpieces made at home.
How do you honor these treasures without turning your home into a pile filled gallery?
Step 1. Keep or toss. Only keep the favorites and what they are most proud of. In general coloring pages are not art – they are busy work. You can toss them GUILT FREE. Here is a link to info on how/if to recycle art works.
Step 2. Display. I have a frame like this for each kid. They can choose what to display.
Step 3. Preservation. We love having a book made from the art work. Our system was to collect until 2nd grade. Then Plum Print sent us a box to fill, and we could direct if we wanted the art sent back or not, what to put on the cover, any notes etc.
