I recommend spending the money to purchase a good quality artist portfolio for each of your little artists. You can get one from any good art supply store such as Michaels. Be on the watch for coupons. I’ve kept everything from the large scribbled butcher paper drawings of my not yet 2 year old to the senior designed yearbook entry of my 18 year old.
Not only do these portfolios provide a simple, convenient spot to keep these masterpieces safe. It allowed a seasoned Mom like myself the gift of re-reading “thanks for being my mom” from her sweet 12 year old……18 years later.
Tip: write your child’s name and age/ date on the back of every piece they hand you…. that way the ones you keep will already be labeled.
