Managing Your Child’s Artwork

Your child produces arts and crafts prodigiously.  Your house is not huge.  Storage is becoming an issue.  How do you decide what creations to keep and what not to keep?

If the creation in question has generated a great deal of pride in your child (i.e., a craft project that won a prize in a county fair, which gave your child a tremendous ego boost), then that creation should be kept.

If the creation is the first of its kind for your child, that creation should be kept.

If the creation is particularly well done. that creation should be kept.

If the creation is noteworthy for some sentimental or emotional reason (i.e., a sketch of Grandma with a halo drawn just days after Grandma died), that creation should be kept.

If the creation represents a developmental stage for your child (i.e., a plaster casting of your child’s hand), that creation should be kept.

If the creation is emotionally insignificant, is one of many similar items, is not particularly well crafted, does not represent a developmental stage for your child, you can keep the creation if you have storage space for it . . . otherwise, choosing not to keep that creation is reasonable.
