What do you do with all their Artwork?

Someone asked me this week what I do with all the Arts & Crafts my little ones create?

Well, it goes straight up on the fridge as DD3 loves to see it displayed and must make her feel very proud of herself. This is great, until your fridge is so cluttered you can't even get to the handle! So what do you do with it?

Here are some ideas:

1) keep a memory box/folder to look back on. We keep a selection of dated artwork in preschool folders for all the kiddies.

2) gift it to grandparents! We always have a pile of lovely artwork the kiddies have done for their grandparents and great grandparents. I'm sure they'll appreciate their fridge being cluttered with artwork too!

3) if it's nearing the end of the year then buy some mini calendar tabs to attach to paintings and create your own calendars to give out to friends and family.

4) instead of the fridge, make a dedicated 'art wall' or piece of string across their bedroom to proudly peg up with Minipegs! 

5) cut it up and reuse to make collages or other artwork!

6) turn it into placemats! See this link

What do you do with yours? ;)
