Where do you keep the trophies your kids get from all the sports?

Wherever they fit! DS2 has trophys from BMX racing on his dresser. The others don'thave any yet.

I just got two for a karate tournament this past weekend, and have no clue what to do with it. I'm thinking of putting shelves in our school room and put everyone's in there. DS1 has another tournament in a month and DS2 and dd will be competing in gymnastics soon.

PS... I only display EARNED. Trophys, those for placing. I hate the trend of giving everyone on a team a trophy justbecause they showed up for the season. It needs to be a trophy for PLACING to go on the shelf...otherwise it will go in their "keepsake box"...a rubbermaid bin that I have for each child with special projects, papers, scout stuff etc. They will get when they get married.

In their rooms. Once we run out of room, we'll move some to the basement.

My kids haven't gotten trophies since they were in youth bowling and that's been a couple of years because I don't like how they do it here.  Anyway, they kept them on their dressers.

 Whereever they want them. My son likes to take his trophies to his grandparents house.

$73.00!! Holy Crap! Lol

I've thought about making one like the first one you posted for DS and I. We will see how long DS stickes with it.

My dad is a woodworker, has a full shop in his garage and we could make something like that for less than $30 with oak or another nice wood.
