If you have young children like me, then you probably like to put your kids' projects and crafts up on the refrigerator for proud parent display. But if you're also like me, you don't always know what to do with the old projects when the kids bring home more projects. My son brings home so many projects from preschool, and on top of what he makes at Primary (children's church) and what our daughter makes at Nursery (also at church), I constantly run out of room on the fridge! I hate to throw away their projects, so I scrapbook what I can, and put a lot of the projects in a portfolio case, but unfortunately some things just can't be kept. So to recognize and to preserve their sweet projects, I'll occasionally take pictures of them with their projects and then scrapbook the pictures. The kids really don't mind having their picture taken, so it's a win-win for everyone!
Of course, when we take a picture of one child, the other child feels like he/she has to be in the picture, too! Not that there's anything wrong with that!
My son with all his many projects from preschool--boy does he bring home a lot of stuff! He's holding up a book he made about the universe. He does such a good job and is always so pleased to show me what he makes at school.
My daughter with a necklace she made at Nursery. It says "I'm happy when I say I'm sorry). And she is happy here!
Do you have a favorite way to preserve your kids' projects and crafts? Please share by leaving a comment--I'd love to have some more ideas!
