Schoolwork is now coming home preparing for the Summer break. So what do you do with the really cool stuff? Here are some ideas on preserving your child's art and projects!

1. Book it. Take a photo of all of their artwork, projects, stories or other amazing work and print it in a photo book. That way you don't have the clutter but can save their masterpieces.

2. Frame it.

Take several of your child's best pieces and frame them. Switch them out each year or whenever they bring something else home that is amazing.

3. Collage it.

Cut some of their work and make a poster-board collage. These look great in hallways and playrooms.

4. Archive it.

Get mailing tubes and store their best work for each grade. These store easily and are great to go through every year.

5. Organize it.

Get a storage cabinet just for schoolwork and organize in files by subject and grade.

6. Art it.

Take photos of their art and turn into magnets, mugs, coasters, puzzles and more!
