It seems to me that we've already discussed so many ideas for creative activities that if you managed to implement even a third of them, you should already have a whole room filled with creations.


As a mom, it's sometimes really challenging to decide what to do with all this wealth. If you didn't know, I have an extremely creative child. She can spend hours sculpting and drawing. She's already gearing up to become an artist. Of course, I want to preserve everything as a memory, but there's not even enough space for that. So today, I wanted to talk to you about what to do with children's art creations.



Here are a few key pieces of advice that might help you:


  1. Teach your child to toss things

The skill of letting go of material things is important. Just as choosing their clothes and giving away toys that no longer interest them. Involve your little one in this process. Most art projects are made from paper or cardboard. Explain to the child what recycling and reusing mean. Here are some useful books on this topic.


  1. The process of creating brings joy to the child, not just the result.

Keep only what brings joy. Tell your child that they can choose what they consider a successful piece and display it prominently. They can also choose unsuccessful works. If it's hard for the child to let go, you can do it and decide if there's no attachment to a particular work, and it's just taking up space.


We often display projects prominently for all family members to admire. However, after some time, we decide whether to keep, recycle, or discard the artwork. When your child starts bringing home projects from daycdaily day, you'll have tobit ruthless about it. Keep things that your child is particularly proud of and that you genuinely love.

My husband's mom kept some of his childhood creations. It's really fun and touching to look aem now and show them to our child. However, I'm not sure my husband would be thrilled to sort through huge boxes of his childhood works if his mom had kept everything. Most likely, he would have just thrown the whole box away.

  1. Create an exhibition of children's works.

Choose the most beloved works to frame or display on the bedroom or fridge wall (discard when a new piece takes its place). You can create a whole corner on the wall with exhibition pieces attached to a board or easel.



  1. Scan drawings and create a slideshow or a real movie.

Digital formats are a great way to preserve memories of your child's creative experience without taking up space.


  1. Take photographs of them.

Create a photo book of the most valuable pieces of art so you can look at them together.


  1. Create a scrapbook.

Combine all the works into one album or stick them in a notebook, creatinwrapsntire book.


  1. Uswrapsem as gift wraps or handmade cards.

This way, your loved ones will receive a beautiful, unique wrapping with a special touch – it was created with love by your little one!
