Thank you Mary, for setting the tone here. Without further adieu, my 3 simple rules for editing your children’s art.
1. If it’s not personal - toss it. Staying in the lines on a page torn from a coloring book page does not warrant keeping for 3 decades. First drawing of your family? Frame it – this deserves more than a box.
2. If it’s bigger than my Bigso Document box - toss it. Preschool art projects will not overtake my home or my life.
3. If you know the teacher did the majority of the work - toss it. You know the way-too-perfect Halloween thumbprint project. Cute? Beyond. Showing my child’s creativity? Not so much. See ya.
WAIT, THERE’S MORE…
