6 Ways to Preserve Your Kid's Creations
Kids love to show off their creations. So why not celebrate their creativity and preserve the memory?
Frame your young Picasso's most masterful masterpieces, signed and dated by the artist.
Designate a few spaces in the house where your kid's work can remain on display for a few days - the fridge makes a great gallery for small works of art while a wall in the playroom is ideal for large-scale creations.
Record it! If you have a video camera, prompt your kid to narrate the story behind her creations. Or, on a particularly rainy day, plan to put on a play
, and film it!
Write about it. As your kid plays, he can voice his ideas, thoughts, and storylines to you, and you can jot them all down.
Snap photos of your kid's awesome creations with a digital camera so that when the "art space" gets full; your kid's creations will live on.
Make a scrapbook of your kid's drawings (or the digital printouts) and of photos of her at play. You can group them by theme, such as "A Day at the Race Track" (with you kid decked out in her HELMET HEROES Race Car Driver
gear) and decorate the pages with related stickers, labels, stamps, and magazine clippings.
