All the wonderful works of art, scribbles and assorted school papers that my 3-year-old has created over the past year or so have been piling up long enough. It’s time to do something with them.
I guess I should have had a plan for them sooner, but, well … you know. My to-do list has grown rather large, and organizing kid papers keeps falling to the bottom of the list. Alert the Bad Mom Police!
So I’ve got scads of her stuff and no clue what to do next. Am I supposed to scan each paper and create a digital scrapbook? Do I include the dates she created them, or at least a year? Do I put everything into file folders and keep them for posterity? Just tossing everything in the trash seems tempting for the short-term, but feels wrong. Maybe I should choose a few of the “best” examples to save and trash the rest?
I’m turning to you, WMAG friends. What can I do to preserve my child’s educational legacy that won’t take up tons of room or my time?
