Painted art pieces that are 8 and a half by 11 are easily stored in an album or three ring binder with plastic sleeves. Little Popsicle stick turkeys can be displayed in shadow boxes and hung in a quiet spot on the wall. We are creating art, not junk — let’s showcase their little finger paintings! (Tip: Don’t forget to date your child’s artwork…trust me, ten years from now you will be glad you did!)
