How to organize all the stuff you kids bring home from school.

Now that school is almost out for the summer,  you know it’s going to happen…

Last day of school they will bring home papers, art projects and test papers. It may have already started and you have to decide what you are going to do with them.A photo by Tim Arterbury. unsplash.com/photos/VkwRmha1_tI

Of course almost every parent’s refrigerator is an art gallery. But want about giving their masterpieces a more prominent place? You can use clipboard and create a gallery wall that are easily changeable. You can read more about using clipboards to create art galleries from Houzz.com. click here

Another fabulous option that answers the question of what to do with all the treasures they bring home every day.

SCAN or snap a digital photo of them.

Set up a digital photo frame for each of your children.

Digital frames can now share photos without a computer. It connects to the Internet via phone line to download new pictures and information to display on the screen. Basic digital frames have internal memory and just a USB port; some can use a memory chip. They are not complicated to load your pictures on. The most basic digital picture frames contain a certain amount of internal memory and a USB port. You simply connect the frame to a computer via USB and the frame shows up looking like a flash drive, and then drag and drop images to the frame until the memory is full.

You can enjoy their treasures every day and not have lots of clutter – Bonus.

The grandparents love getting these.

Give them a digital photo frame for each of your children.  We have given our parents a digital frame from each of us. That way they can update our photos and share our candid pictures with them on a regular basis. We just load the flash drive and sent it to them.

Grandparents, parents and siblings appreciate getting more pictures from you and that they don’t have to find a place for a new frame.

If you choose not to go digital you can set up albums, boxes or folders for your children. At the end of the year you can choose the best or your favorites and have them made into a book.child_scribble_age_1y10m

What are your thoughts? Digital or hard copy? Really it does not matter as long as you organize them and make sure you give your kids the proper amount of ooohs and ahhhs.

  1. My living room walls contain my favorite piece of my daughters work from each year of elementary school, and a portfolio with an example of her writing or projects from each year

  2. As the grandparents *aka parents* (now all nice and legal in the court’s eyes), I like the idea of digitizing the artwork. My grandaughter (aka daughter) is starting school in August, so we will have papers galore, I’m sure.
