Poll: Do You Save All of Your Child’s Artwork?

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

You want to support your little budding artists, but the amount of artwork is taking over every inch of your storage space. 

A recent New York Times article noted a growing dilemma among parents–where (or how) to store all the glittery scribbles their children produce at school, at home, and just about everywhere.  Some parents ruthlessly edit or surreptitiously discard less-inspired artwork, intent on keeping the home uncluttered while teaching their kids not to be sentimental pack rats. 

Other parents, however, can’t bear to part with their children’s drawings and paintings (no matter how banal), preferring to find creative storage or display solutions.  Still others have discovered the savvy (but time-consuming) solution of scanning all their children’s artwork onto a computer and compiling a digital scrapbook. 

At Parents, we offer creative solutions for transforming your kid’s art into playing cards and jewelry to save on storage space while also showing your kids you value their artistic efforts.

Fancy Style for Your Little One

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Even though your kid might be young, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to decorate her bedroom in all Disney Princesses (not that there’s anything wrong with the occasional Disney Princess, don’t get me wrong).

But right now, we’re really loving Skart, a site that offers beautiful, eco-friendly, handcrafted prints that your child will be able to take with her from the nursery to her dorm room, and on to wherever her life may take her.

If the designs on the site aren’t quite your style, Skart offers custom art options as well.
