How do you handle it all? What do you do with it? Where should it go?
After some time on the frig – the place of honor – what’s next?
Below are two quick tips to help you start off the school year so the influx of those daily masterpieces can be less stressful.
- Start an art project folder for each child. Oversized professional artist’s portfolios work great. Your local art or office supply store and Amazon will have a variety of sizes and materials to choose from. As projects come home, save the favorites in the portfolio. At the end of the school year, select only the top 5-10 to save.
- If you haven’t already started a box/crate for report cards, special documents, cards, and annual school photos, now is the time. Use separate hanging folders by age or grade, and when your child graduates if you need to build an Open House “shrine”, it will all be there. You’re welcome.
