I have been finding myself overwhelmed lately with all my children’s artwork from preschool and I have no idea what would be a creative way to keep all the artwork. What are some suggestions? They should preferably be ideas that will not take up too much room! Thanks

Ask your question

  • You can buy cheap art folders with large plastic sleeves in them to store art works. If the art works include sculptures, then perhaps a storage container might be best.



  • I have a plastic container that I put all the art work I want to keep from my children, its the special ones I keep.



  • You can use the artwork as gift wrapping for family and friends? But if you want to keep it with you, I roll mine up and store the in a cardboard box. My very favourite ones get laminated and hung on the wall



  • Folders and plastic sleeves work well!



  • Glue into a large kids scrapbook



  • few in files and few in chart in her bedroom, choice is hers.



  • Free APP called artkive



  • I scan them in or take a photo depending on the suez, then print some off as photo size and put them in a frame. The original art work gets stored in a plastic tub by year.



  • A friend of mine has made a framed picture out of parts of the art work. Can’t keep it all but it lets you save parts of a number of special pieces



  • Make books out of them. I never keep everything otherwise you would have too much. I just pick out the best and bin the rest after a month, that way they don’t notice.



  • I keep his works of art in manila folders then do a big organise at the end of the term.



  • A folder with the plastic sleeves works great :-)



  • They bring home so much and I found the big ones great for wrapping up gifts for grandparents and aunts etc. If you use the magic tape it doesnt rip the paper



  • I suffer this same thing!



  • some really good answers here, thanks for the tips.
