I am overrun by my children’s artwork!

What to keep of your children’s artwork is such a hard decision to make.  It is ALL so darn cute!

It can easily get out of control though if we don’t make some decisions along the way.

Here are some tips that will help with this situation.

1.  Gather up the artwork and lay it on the floor (in a semi-circle) then
have the child lay down in the middle of the artwork and take a picture
from up above them. You then can let go of the original artwork because
you have a picture of it and you will also know how old your child was
when the picture was taken.
2.  Give the child a finite space to hang their artwork up, like a
bulletin board and have them decide when to change from one artwork to
another.  The decision is then put on them and you will know which ones
mean a lot to them.
3.  Use an archival storage box per year that is about 11 x 14 and 2 inches deep.
This should be the amount of artwork kept through the 6 years of artwork
the child should have.
