I've been putting Ethan's up on the wall with masking tape but now that my younger son is in preschool too I'm thinking about other ways to store all the pictures they come home with. What do you do?

Ummm... I keep a handful and I throw the rest out.

I do know friends that take pictures and then set up folders on their computer. Digital art galleries.

But Sam is NOT artistic... I have saved his essays and letters to companies/military/zoos with suggestions for them. :) lol... Ugh, my kid is too funny!!!

That's really adorable.
Taking pictures...that's a good idea. The kids love to just look through pictures and if they saw their work I think they'd love it.

I have bins I keep their projects, papers, cards, etc in. I don't keep everything though.. My older 2 have 2 bins (each have a full bin) and my 3 yo has one and kit very full yet. I display a lot of their art work as well as take pics of it to show family ;)

Fridge, stays in notebooks, or they hang them on their bedroom walls.

We hang them on the wall in the playroom. Then after awhile they get stored under my bed. I try to keep only certain things.

The above is a photo of our wide hallway that leads from the foyer to the great room.  I framed some of his work, and then I have a single plastic container for some other favorites.  The container is the type for wrapping paper, so it works the artwork.  Some ( a lot) gets tossed.....I also have a giant cork board that is painted w chalkboard paint, and I pin things on that.  But I am going to move that up to my son's bedroom so he can put things up on his wall......his friends give him art, he has small anime posters etc.........so I am giving up my board for him.
