What to Do With Your Kid's Art Masterpieces (Shhhh, We Won't Tell if You Don't)! by Kim Kusiciel
I have three kids. That means three kids worth of art projects, crafts, rock and leaf collections, painted pottery from birthday parties and so much more. You name it, it's in my house. Correction, it was in my house. I have learned the rule of three. It is a lifesaver!
- For every three projects your child brings home, they get to keep one.
- When they have saved three, you get to keep one. The rest go in a really special place – the recycling bin.
This can be the tricky part, they aren't always ready to part with their masterpieces. But that is when a little midnight magic works. After they are asleep, take those works of art and throw them out. Be sure to hide them in between other garbage or recyclables so they don't find the evidence the next day!
