If you have kids, you probably also have their beautiful artwork…somewhere. Right? Are the beautiful works of their creations stored away in a box somewhere…maybe? Right?
If you answered yes, maybe, or not sure, then I have some ideas of how to get them out of that box (or other place you will eventually remember) to be enjoyed in more visible ways!
Want to hear more?
But, for now, let’s move on with the next step once the photos of your child’s artwork are taken and uploaded in your FOREVER® Account…CREATE A PHOTO STORY BOOK!
I can already envision what a beautiful coffee table item such a photo story book will be as you walk through the pages of your favorite artist’s gallery of creations! It can also be a great conversational opportunity for you and your child, too, for years to come. “Tell me the story about this creation.” “How did you feel making this?” “Why did you choose this color or that shape?” "Remember what was going on when you were that age?"
Children love to see their artwork on display. Many times, the refrigerator door is the display case for a child’s art…UNTIL. Until the edges curl and/or the paper tears. Until it gets wet or stained. Until it falls or gets buried behind another piece of paper.
No matter where you keep the artwork, over time, construction paper becomes brittle and easily rips. Overtime, pasta noodles or other glued embellishments lose their adhesiveness. Overtime, paint cracks/peels and pencil drawings smudge. Over time, the art can become unrecognizable. You don’t want to throw it out. You want to hold on to the precious memories, but you also don’t want to keep it in decaying conditions. What to do?
CREATE A PHOTO STORY BOOK!
Here’s a quick tip if your youngster is still in their early stages of art making: Take a photo of your child holding their artwork. That way, you capture both the artist and their masterpiece. (This also helps to identify the age/date of when the art was created.)
First, I want to encourage you to consider getting the free account of FOREVER® & the free FOREVER® app for your phone. Give your children’s priceless artwork a safe and permanent home along with all of your other precious photo memories.

In the meantime, take a photo of each piece of your child’s artwork…or scan it…or send it in a FOREVER® Media Conversion Box to be professionally digitized into your safe and permanent FOREVER® Account. It's up to you how you'd like to get your photos into it's permanent and safe home with which to enjoy.
“Wait! What’s a FOREVER® Media Conversion Box?”

Here’s another great artistic idea: Help your youngster create their own photo story books! An A-B-C book, a 1-2-3 book, or a Colors & Shapes Book. Or, create a photo story book yourself to give as a gift for a little one! What a fun, one-of-a-kind gift it will be for them! They'll be smiling just like Paul (nephew of one of our Ambassador's) is in this photo! What joy! This gift is actually great for ages 0-100+!

I feel like I’m about to turn into an infomercial by saying,
“But, wait, there’s more!”
But, seriously...THERE IS!

Your child created their masterpiece for you to celebrate. Instead of letting their art stay boxed, damaged or lost, preserve these precious life stories now and for future generations.
