Q & A

How long do you keep your children’s art projects hanging on the wall?

I’ve got a wreath that I took down when I painted.  DD made it when she was in the sixth grade.  She’s now 26.  That was before I was even her mom.  The last time I mentioned throwing it away she protested that that was her best art project ever!  I have a painting on the wall that another DD did in fourth grade and she’s a sophamore now.  I love having my kids stuff on display, but I’m really tired of some of this stuff.  Any suggestions?  What do you do?

    • I love to dance and my oldest son did a pencil drawing of me in my favorite dance pose. It is still hanging on my wall as I write this. I had it matted and framed after he drew it and it has followed me from California to Louisiana. He drew it in 1997. He was 13 at the time.

    • I had my son’s pictures since Kindergarten.  He was born in 1991.  I put them all in boxes in the basement.  They are just priceless.

    • My niece lives in a three story house.  The stairwell that goes from the main level to the bottom level which is the garage plus another den and bedroom....has her small kids works of art on the wall of the stairwell.  Almost like a collage.  That way...they get to see it every time the leave or come home. What I would do is take a good bit of it...make a collage out of it and then frame it in a huge frame (that you could buy a Michael’s or another craft store)..then hang that picture up somewhere.

    • My biggest problem is that I live in an 800 sq ft house.  There simply isn’t storage space.    I keep only the most special things, and I guess I’ll just keep them hanging on the wall because that’s the easiest place to keep them.
