Like this idea - Scan childrens art work and then print out in smaller size. Now make art gallery in hallways of your childrens art:). Awesome idea, even for my grown young adults to have all of the kept keepsakes of their artwork in one frame.
as Growth Chart: Record how quickly your child has grown by lining up shoes in a shadow box and labeling them with the appropriate ages. I'm a sucker for baby shoes! Could use the other shoe(s) & make another shadowbox for grandma :)
