I have found that displaying my children’s artwork is something they really love!  They are so pleased to see that I love their masterpiece enough to find a prominent place for it.  Their artwork gets clipped or taped to our refrigerator, bedroom walls, the side of Luke’s make-shift dresser, even the hallway occasionally dorns the color of fall leaves, butterflies, and rainbows!

To make room for new masterpieces, I have kept some special pieces (Luke’s coloring of our family, notes Logan has scribbled and called “Prayer Requests,” and Lindsay’s finally-mastered princess picture.)   Sometimes I have folded and mailed pieces to the grandparents so they, too, can enjoy the creativity of their grandchildren.
