I’m not one of those mothers that saves every piece of paper my child has drawn on. Because I work full time, Jaxon goes to an in-home childcare with a lady that we go to church with. She teaches a cirrucilum and he loves it there. He started there when he was about 4 months old. Once he was around one he started bringing papers home! Needless to say – We have a LOT of papers from this kid and he’s only 3! If it is from a workbook I don’t save it – unless he has done something amazing on it. If it is on construction paper and involves paint, especially finger paint, it’s a keeper. Recently I weeded out some of the stuff we didn’t need to keep.
These are the ones that I decided I wanted to display:
They may not look like much but to me they’re little masterpieces!
This is how I decided to display them. I went to snapfish.com and made a 11×14 poster. I should get it in the mail this week. It was under $10.00 and I LOVE IT!!!
I’ll be sure to post a picture once it’s framed and hung!
Thanks to Carrie at Carrie’s sweet life…..I’ve been awarded my first blog award!
I’ll be back with my list of who I will pass it on to!
Ps. I am also working on some fabulous pumpkins…..I can’t wait to show you – tomorrow – so come back then!
