Professional Organizing Tips and Resources.
Let's get Crafty!
Here is an easy way to have fun and create a nifty art storage case for your child's art projects.
Not only is this a practical exercise, it is also a great way to spend quality time with the kids.
Be sure to allow them a chance to get crafty and help decorate it as you build it.
As you put the it together have the kids sort their artwork and maybe decide to let go a few of their less favorite pieces. Narrowing down their collection to the ‘Best of the Best’ will help ease clutter and leave you all with their best works to praise over and over again.
Once you create the case, by simply folding the construction paper together and sealing up the sides, cut a handle in it if you like.
Then when you have the main part together, the kids can decorate it! Depending on their age you may need to help, but either way let them get their creativity going and have fun!
Here's all that I used to make this one:
You don't have to stop with one. At approximately $1 per sheet, you can make many more and not break the bank. For example you can make one for each school year, and for each child (if you have multiple children). You can even create one to hold more craft paper for future works.
Safety Tip: Remember to watch when using a stapler that you tape the seam up to prevent any snags on clothing or little fingers. Ouch!
More Important Tip: Have Fun!
& if you want to share your creation afterwards, I would be thrilled to see them and post them to my blog and perhaps newsletter. I relish the thought of getting to see just how creative my readers are!
