They love to draw and this book is so great to springboard off of for our art lessons. True and Brave are a little over a year apart, but you can still tell how that slight bit of time affects their perception, spatial understanding, and certain developmental abilities. It probably isn’t so obvious just by looking at these pictures, but I totally see it in their drawings that they often leave all over the house.
I love all their drawings, but they do so many, so often, that I frequently end up putting some in the recycle box. I try my best to not be a hoarder, so I always feel bad when I toss something they drew. I do keep some (a lot actually) and put it in a memory box, but it’s so hard to pick sometimes what to pick to save and what to toss.
Our “memory box” is in a coat closet and I put the things I want to save into that box. I try to encourage them to do a lot of their drawing into their designated sketchbooks to make things easier to save since it’s all in one place, but those girls love to get printer paper to draw on and I find those drawings everywhere! What are some of your tips for keeping your children’s artwork?
