Last week I shared a fun way to display some of those kids art projects and today I wanted to share a little mommy hack that saves me tons of space without the guilt of tossing all.those.papers.
A few months ago I heard about this free app called ArtKive (don't you love the play on words?). I've been using it recently and let me tell you it's a life (and counter) saver.
No longer do I have a pile of papers from my daughter's school folder stacked
Once the photos are in Artkive you can assign them to folders broken down by each child and then each child's grade or age.
I like the caption feature because my daughter's spelling is still a little difficult to understand, at times. I ask her what the words are and then caption the photo that so I remember. Now 10 years from now I'll know what 'Fed bedr olrede' means. :)
Then at the end of the year or end of the school year, you can actually print a photo book - directly through Artkive - and all of your children's precious master pieces are preserved in one spot. This makes it such an easy way to flip through their work and see their progress in school. Plus, you eliminate all those bins...which let's face I doubt I would go back and look through anyway.
Thanks for stopping by 2IY! If you like what you see, we'd love for you to pin it!
