Strategies for Storing Kids Artwork Over the Years

Good Questions

Q: Our son is almost two, and we're already amassing quite a collection of his artwork. I can't imagine how much more we'll have as he gets older. I would like to save his artwork, in some form, so that I can have it to look back on, and so that I can pass it along to him someday. So far, I've just been sticking all of his "drawings" and paintings in a box. I'm wondering how other people store or archive their kids' art. Do you keep all the originals? If so, how/where do you store them? Do you take digital photos? Scan them? If someone has a slick system I'd love to hear about it

Sent by VanessaEditor: Great question - does anyone have a "slick system" you can share with Vanessa?
