New Display Board

Does your child bring home craft things they have made at school/pre-school/church that you don't know what to do with? Mine does so I came up with this-
For all the things Kate brings home from school, I feel slightly guilty to just throw it all away as soon as she brings it home so I made this big memo board for my kitchen, then each day we put up the beautiful things she brings home, they stay up for the whole month and the 1st of the next month it gets cleaned off for the next months treasures. I don't feel guilty about throwing it away as we have displayed it for a good amount of time and I don't feel like I have to keep/store any of it either, if she does indeed bring home something I want to keep I save it for the scrapbook.

I love that. It's a perfect idea. I got this for T's room and I love it for the same reason. We hang things up for a couple weeks, then replace. He's take things on and off, and then I'm not throwing it all away. Great idea Claire!
