Great ideas in your September "Interchange" about what to do with kids' art projects that can easily fill a refrigerator! As the parent of two teenagers, I remember the first time we tried to take art work from day-care off the fridge.

A suggestion we received years ago that worked well for us was to photograph the fridge at regular intervals with the family artist standing nearby. With digital cameras, we could take these pictures often.

This made it easier to remove the "originals" for storage or to send to family, etc. Whenever a project had special meaning or took great effort, we would take a picture of our son or daughter holding it. That way we could archive the work and record the proud smile.

Saving digital photos eased separation concerns when things were moved off the fridge. They made later viewing possible and allowed us to share electronically through email or family circles on social media sites.
