Little Art

If you have a small child, you very likely end up with a lot of art.  I never really know what to do with Ellington's art and I had just been clipping it to the fridge.  My clip was getting VERY full and I needed to clear off the fridge because that is where I display Christmas cards.  So, I wasn't really sure what to do!  

Several weeks ago I got the idea to fold a piece of poster board in half and staple it down the sides to create a great big folder of sorts.  A normal size folder wouldn't quite do because some of her artwork is larger than a regular piece of paper.  I let Ellington decorate her folder!

The folder works great and I keep it stored behind a dresser.  It keeps everything together, but it isn't a big mess.  Win win.

The last few times that I have wrapped gifts I have saved little scraps.  Yesterday I let Ellington make a collage with them.  She LOVED it and it was CHEAP.  Another win win.

I just wanted to share these two idea with ya'll!  Happy Sunday!
