rufflesandstuff Paige and I have been working on this "art" gallery wall forever, and I don't know what to do with it now that we're moving. I hate to throw all these priceless works in the trash...but keeping them feels too hashtag hoarders. What should I do??😐 1mon
  •   replicatethendeviate Scan into a book and keep your favorites. 1mon
  •   replicatethendeviate Or print them on fabric and make a quilt. .... 1mon
  •   culturemakersblog Keep em. Just stash them in a folder! 1mon
  •   dearchantilly Scrapbook them!! 1mon
  •   iheartstitchart I can't ever bear to toss my kids' artwork at first. I put it all into a giant tote. Then once a year (or three) or so I go through it and after that time has passed it is easier to see which ones jump out at me as 'quintessential representation of childhood creativity' and which ones are just pieces of paper. And I recycle the ones without meaning. I save a LOT tho. 1mon
  •   mary.ann.b Keep them! I frame my kiddos' works in the cheap Ikea wooden frames (all different sizes) and display them. It's to a point now where I have to stack them 3-4 to a frame (one behind the other) and change them out every so often. The ones they really want to keep end up in their keepsake pre-made scrapbook and the ones I can't part with I put in a binder...part of a bigger project; a projected graduation present with annual birthday letters from me. 1mon
  •   sohl413 Keep your top 5 (or 10) and put them in a 3 ring binder with plastic sleeves. Then you can flip through them like a little art portfolio and keep adding to it! 1mon
  •   amyethomas Scan them so you can have a digital copy forever. 1mon

rufflesandstuff That one time I let Ace look at our American Girl catalog, and he didn't even get it at all. 1mon
  •   hadessamullane Oh my gosh, so funny! My son is six and the other day I tried to teach him one of those old hand clapping games. He put up with it and when I was done with the rhyme he says, "Mom. What was THAT all about?!" That pretty much sums up Ace's face! 1mon
  •   tiffgram_ I love this kid! 1mon
  •   craftymamajen The face!! Adorable! 1mon
  •   crystalalexanian I just smile every time you post a picture of him!! 1mon
