20 Creative Ways to Preserve your Kids’ Memories

photo book of your child's art

Are you prepared if one of your kids goes missing? While filling out the child ID form for my daughter's school I got annoyed by how quickly the cards would be outdated. Decided to look online and found this much better solution. Allows me to have a file for my 2 year old (who's more likely to run off anyways!) as well. Has anyone tried this app? Seems like such a good idea. . .

Oh, how I wish I had known about this years ago! Trace your child's hand at every birthday and see it grow. Glue one to the other, but do not glue them down to the mat. (That way you can add next years hand to the back).

Child-Proof your apps. Had no idea! Cool.

Doodle Tag. Upload your child's artwork and have it made into a recycled silver pendant! Plus, you get a rubber stamp and stamp pad with your child's doodle!

GENIUS!!! an app that photographs and archives your kids' art, and then you can print a coffee table book of the collection. i'm in love! @Andi Mae

I never know what to do with all their artwork, awards, etc. from school. What a nifty idea...

I need this for my office!

I am so doing something like this.... - Kids' Keepsake Boxes with files for: Birthday Cards, Report Cards, Artwork, School Pictures, Toddler, Preschool, 1st – 12th Grades (1 file for each), Awards, etc

She said, "My son is in preschool and the adorable art work is pouring in. I know he isn't going to want all these old papers when he is older so I am taking a picture of everything, keeping my very favorites to display at holidays or in a scrapbook and everything else just has to go. I found this amazing idea for displaying his artwork using the photos I have taken.

sized to hold the standard sizes of artwork created at school or home, 8-1/2" x 11" or 9" x 12". It's easy to change the artwork—just open the door and slide the new picture into the front pocket. Each polystyrene-covered wooden frame also includes a 3/4" deep compartment behind the picture to store approx. 50 more pictures. $9 - $10

Teach your child how to tie shoes in 5 min....seriously cool way to tie shoes!!!

Time-out bottles. Fill a bottle with 3/4 water, one bottle of glitter glue, & ultra fine glitter. Then send this bottle with your child to timeout and they can watch it settle to calm them. Once the glitter is settled their time is up!

FREE Birthday Interview Idea~ Parents can ask the same questions and take a quick picture each year to see how their child grows in every way. Teachers can use the same idea to create a rotating display to celebrate each student's special day!

Entertainment center turned play kitchen! So creative! Not so much with the hot pink and animal print-but we could definitely do this! (With help from Holly)
