Works For Me Wednesday......

Playing along with Shannon at http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/ it is Works For Me Wednesday again!!!! Today's tip involves what to do with all of the art work you collect as a parent. We keep a shallow box under each kids bed for their art work. They are allowed to keep one on the fridge and one up in their room- rotating as often as they like. (In our other house we hung a clothes line over their craft table and used clothes pins to hang a bunch of art work)......as they begin to have favorites we use "the other" pieces to wrap gifts or decorate cards with- this way the grandparents/aunts/uncles and cousins get to see what the kids have been doing all year! At the end of the year each child chooses one piece and we frame it and hang somewhere in the house........Works for me!

Great idea! I never thought to use the artwork for wrapping paper, although I have used it for cards.

We do the tub thing, although I think I need more tubs. But I hadn't thought about the clothes line or the wrapping paper. Thanks for the suggestion. We have been wondering what to do with the oldest's preschool stuff now that K is starting.
