Since my daughter has been in daycare she has been coloring, finger painting, doing crafts, or drawing daily. Some of the thing that’s she’s done I’ve just fell in love with and could not bare to see getting messed up. The one I love the most is the butterfly she made. Her hands are the wings and I think it is the cutest painting so far that she’s brought home. I have her foot prints from the day she was born, when she was three months old, and now at two years old. I have one of her hand in a mold casting from when she was a year old that my sister in law had done for me. Now that she is two years old I have her hand prints. I think I see a growing tradition that I did not really plan, but it sounds like a really good idea.
I’ve been searching for ideas on the internet and haven’t found any that I like so far. Some of them called for cutting them up or pasting them to this or that. I actually like them the way they are. There are a few ideas for scribbles on regular paper that I liked, but she mostly has paintings and crafts.
I’m really just looking for a way to preserve them for when she gets older. Or maybe a cute way to frame them. For now I decided to buy a regular 3 ring binder and plastic sleeves to place her pictures in. Seems to work perfectly. All of her artwork already has dates on them, so I don’t have to worry about dating them.
There is one artwork however, I won’t be saving. My lil miss thought she would get creative and color on the wall. It isn’t too bad, a few lines here and there; Red crayon marks on a mocha colored wall. Just need to find this paint color (that’s about 12+ years old) or a way to get it off the wall. Anyone have any ideas how to get crayon markings off the wall without ruining the paint? Any ideas would be appreciated. Lol!
