Kid's Art Organizing

Mother of the year award?

Hmmm...probably not. This is what I have done with my beloved daughter's art...after it has been taken down off the walls of our kitchen:

A pile...that was on top of the armoire in our playroom.

Not a good thing.

I suppose I am a sentimental mush, but this year is her first year of preschool. The first time she has ever been away from me for more than an hour...ever. And I miss her when she's there. All three hours, three days a week.

I keep her art.

All of it.

And I need a good way to organize it (and keep it forever and ever.

I went to Office Max today, with grandiose plans of making my own art portfolio. I had poster boards in my hands and a plan written up.

And then I passed this:

For $8.99 - less than I would have spent on making my own portfolio.


I organized all of Little Miss's artwork tonight, while I watched television. And, yes, I did get a little misty-eyed when I saw some of those hand-prints.

Simple, and I think I will do this every year with all the little one's school work(s).

Here's is the folder all "stuffed up" and full!

This is another great idea from you. My mom kept all my art work, I mean ALL of it. And I am 26. I could maybe do this for her this summer when I am back at home :)
