A reader shared a photo to our Facebook page: a dad had created bookmarks by cutting out pictures from his young daughter’s art work. What a fun way to use our children’s precious creations!

Do you have creative ways to preserve or use your children’s art?

  1. Every year or two, we have a homeschool “fun-raiser.” We gather and frame (if necessary) some of the kids’ favorite artwork. Then we invite grandparents and godparents to our house for a live auction. We give them a packet of monopoly money with which they bid on art work. The children also make and serve snacks during the evening, and they explain their artwork. My mom now has an art gallery wall in her basement of all the pictures she has bid on and won throughout the years!
