For paper artwork that has sentimental value only, you can keep it out of the landfill by:
*taking a picture of it and putting it on a flash drive (recycle the original art)
*making it into a book
*framing the best pieces to display
*re-gifting to grandparents
*cutting it up to use as bookmarks
*making book covers or wrapping paper
OK, all you resourceful parents, please share your creative and clever ideas by commenting!
