  • They go on the fridge until the next ones come home then they go into a box that is marked by year. At the end of the year I pick our favorites (if i havent) and move those to display in the house for the summer or at the office

  • Well, I do display the art and the school work. I just feel like there's SO much. My son comes home from school with at least 3 peices a day. Plus any crafts we do at home. There's also the special seasonal things for Christmas, and Halloween, and the changes of the seasons, and Valentines Day, and Easter, and Earth day, and St. Patrick's day etc.....

  • school work, I keep 2-3 thing from the school year. Craft things we have hanging in the kitchen, when he brings somethign home he wants hung up he gets to pick what comes down.

    Other stuff he has in his room or play room.

  • My dad always had a big plastic tote that he kept all my school work and artwork from when I was younger he still has it to this day,

  • I hang them on the fridge for a while but I also take pictures of each one or the ones that my boys are particularly proud of. I keep some of them with their scrapbooks or in a storage tub for later years but most I just throw away after a while. Because I have a documented picture of artwork or crafts on disc, I can pull it up anytime.
