Tuesday Tips - Art Photobook


Do your kids love art and drawing and creating projects?! Mine do, especially the oldest. When she entered Kindergarten last year, art projects came home on a weekly basis. We proudly display them until the next project comes home but then what?! There is no way you can hang on to every single project they create or you will end up buried under a mound of paper, paint, cotton balls, and yarn. Before we would take down an art project I would take a picture of it then . . . . gasp . . . I would throw them away.

Now, I don't want my children to think I don't value their work and beautiful creations so for Christmas I put in my daughter's stocking a photobook I created of all of her art projects from her Kindergarten year. It was a HUGE hit as she sat and looked through all her beautiful creations.

The bonus about photobooks is that there is usually an online code to get a photobook free: from Shutterfly, Walgreens, Wal-mart, CVS, Kodak, Snapfish and the list goes on. Generally, you just pay shipping and even then sometimes that is free too! For our book we paid around $4 and it is a nice great quality photobook!

Does anyone else have a great tip for storing your children's precious artwork?! Leave a comment and let us know!
