So Much Paper

By Melanie Fleury, edHelperBaby

           Your 2-year-old is having great fun learning the world around her. If she is at preschool or daycare, she has probably started to bring home tons of projects that she has done. If she is at home, you have probably seen her draw or color new works of art everyday. You may also be working with her to color her letters, numbers, and shapes. All that great school work can quickly overcome you if you are not careful!


Memory Book
           Some parents like to sort and store their favorite pieces of artwork created by their toddler. Some save it all and don't quite want to give up any of it. I have found a great way to store and display ones that I love. A few pieces are always set up around the house in picture frames, but the rest have a home of their own.       

       You can buy a great spiral notebook for relatively cheap at a local store. Decorate the front cover with your toddler's name and date so that you can remember when she worked on this book. For us, a 70-page spiral notebook lasts almost 2 months. As your child brings home their art work, have them glue or staple it into the notebook. If you want to get even fancier with it, you can buy an oversized photo album to store them in as well. You can add little anecdotes onto the back of the pages if you like. I like to add the words to the song she is singing because of what we are studying. Each day, pull out the book and go through it with your toddler. Let her see and enjoy the work she has done. She will be attentive because she knows it is her work.
