Dadsnettrackworld – kids art work and what to do with it.
Our house is slowly filling up with, ahem, art crafted by mtbfixlette. Her mum insists that we cannot throw it away. I would like to just photograph it as it comes in the house and then lose it at some point in the following week. What are your solutions for storage and/or disposal of your kid’s artistic creations? As things stand I have visions of boxes and boxes of the stuff cluttering the loft as she grows up.Posted 5 years agoStonerSubscriber
We have 3 large cork boards on the wall in the kids room, Stuff gets pinned up there and once every few months there’s a bit of a cull and a ritual filing in the bin to make space for more pasta shape pictures and glitter-shedding collages…
Just before a purge its rather archaeological – you can mine crayon ore…Posted 5 years agoGweiloMember
Theres still a picture, well map of sorts, on the door to the utility room that my 4 year old daughter produced. She’s 17 now lol
If anyones going to Perast in Montenegro I can let you have a copy of the map. Usefully it tells you where her Granddads House is and where the slippery rock in the swimming area is. 🙂Posted 5 years agoLegomanMember
Pictures aren’t so much of a problem, but as they get older it’s the 3-dimentional stuff that really takes over – junk models, random pottery items, Christmas/Easter/other-religious-festival-related-decor.
We keep a selection of the best stuff, the rest goes to a staging post in the garage for a couple of months, then if it’s not missed by either legochild, it gets discreetly binned.
Have to be careful they don’t spot stuff in the garage though… resulting in ‘what’s my best moving shoe-box dinosaur model doing on the garage floor… and it’s head has come off!!’ Which is distressing for all concerned.Posted 5 years agomintimperialSubscriber
Are you kidding, always keep it. You’ll be glad you did in 20+ years.
Cos by then he’ll have collected enough paper to start a profitable recycled paper mill, assuming he can dig his way out of the house?
Accumulate art by sticking to wall until full, take photo of kid in front of art, put in bin (artwork not kid, the latter will get you in trouble with the authorities APPARENTLY sheesh).Posted 5 years ago
