Organizing School Papers and Artwork

Summer vacation is the perfect opportunity to help your child organize his or her school papers and artwork. Twelve years of school can bring quite an accumulation, so it’s important to set limits on the amount of papers and artwork that you can realistically store. Spend some time with your child and let them participate in the decision-making process. It’s important for them to help decide what they treasure. Find an appropriate container to store the cherished items and be sure to label the year of school along with the child’s name.
