Capture Children’s School Art

If you have school aged children in your household you know there are plenty of pieces of art, tests and school projects. It is difficult to keep every masterpiece but even more difficult to throw them away.

For many years now, when the kids bring home tests and artwork, I snap a picture and upload it into a photobook. The original art stays on the fridge for a week or two and without guilt it is thrown away.

At the end of the school year the kids and the teacher can see their whole year in a hard covered compact photo book. The teachers even write a note in the photobook!


Sketch by my grade 8 daughter- good job KT! Now also captured on the web!


Equal credit to my son – good job ST!
