As the end of the school year is swiftly approaching, parents are faced with what to do with all the art (and school work) clutter their children have produced. Now, when I call it clutter, that is not to say we don't love what our children created, it is just that the shear volume is overwhelming. It seems as if once a child can hold a crayon, their paper seems to multiply faster than fleas! But what is more amazing is our attachment to each and every one they create. Whether it is a masterpiece that Van Gogh would admire, or one that is scribble scrabble (a phrase my kids teachers have used) we can't seem to let go of our budding artists/scholars work. And this is only compounded by having more than one child!
If you were to save each and every piece of paper our children worked on in their 13 years of school, you could fill an entire standard bedroom! Mom's who find out I organize homes always ask how they can better organize their children's art and school work.
