Re-purposing Children's Artwork
I LOVE kid's artwork.
It is so creative, expressive and free from preconceived notions of what art should be.
As I continue to settle into Wee Acres,
I came across a box of my kid's art through the years.
It brought back many smiles--the belly buttons on everything along with lollipop trees.
Needless to say my fridge was always an art museum with the pictures of the week.
Of course a mom can't keep all of the art produced by her children,
but there are many ways to preserve these wonderful creations:
--Use larger pieces for wrapping paper
--take pictures or scan the artwork, send it to a photo website and have it bound into a book. (This would be a fun birthday or Christmas present for the artist to revisit younger years)
--take pictures to an office store and have them laminated to use as placemats
--pick out a favorite, reduce in size, make copies and bind them into a notepad
--scan and use the pictures on a calendar to give to the grandparental units
--use the smaller pictures as post cards or note cards
--place the favorites into an empty scrapbook
--ask your local pizza place if you can purchase a few unused boxes for artwork storage
Please add your ideas!
