Oh, the precious painting, writings, and handprints our children bring us as gifts.
How do we choose the best, display them with pride, and make a lasting memory for our children without adding an addition onto our house to house the paper treasures?
There are 3 methods for storing your kid’s work.
File Boxes. The quickest way to sort kid’s school and artwork is to get a portable file box with bright colored files and label them by year. Then just drop all the art, school work, and certificates in by grade level.
- Create A Binder. I prefer an Avery One Touch Heavy Duty 2 or 2.5 inch binder with 200 sheet protectors to make my kid’s binders. Binders are the easiest way to really flip through and enjoy your child’s work.
- Digital Organization. I am quickly warming up to digital organization of kid’s school and artwork. Designate a file for each child on your computer home screen and scan artwork, school papers, certificates, and photos in by year.
After creating memory storage solutions for my clients and my own children, the Kid’s Art & School Organizer was born.
Included in this kit are Kid’s School & Art Organizer Sheets to help you save the stories and memories that go with each year of your kid’s school and art pieces from 3 year old preschool through 6th grade.
The preschool, prekindergarten, and kindergarten sheets capture your child’s favorites at those stages of their development.
There are 4 preschool and kindergarten sheets:
3 year old preschool
4 year old preschool
The grade school sheets have room for you or your child to share a memorable story that happened in their school and your family during those grades. Kid’s school and art significantly wains after 6th grade which is why that is where this organizer ends.
There are 6 grade school sheets (grades 1-6)
Also included are:
The Kid’s Art & School Organizer Quick Guide (a short 2 page printable to help you collect, sort, and chose your storage method.)
The Kid’s Art & School Organizer Reference Guide to help you easily remember how old your child was in each grade.
The Kid’s Art & School Organizer File Tabs. This sheet of tabs can be printed onto plain paper or Avery label sheets.
This set of 14 documents are completely EDITABLE. They may also be used as printables.
