Help with storage ideas for kid papers

How do you store your kids paperwork that you want to keep? I now have two at Montessori, and although they rarely come home with paperwork, the stuff they do come home with is often a very big accomplishment. I would like to come up with how to store things so I can keep the important stuff nice.

Re: Help with storage ideas for kid papers

I don't do this myself but I like this idea:

An idea my sister likes is to take a picture of it (probably more along the lines of artwork) and then at the end of the school year, have a photo book made.

I use binders and sheet protectors. Things that are odd shaped or too big for a binder go in a box or get a picture taken of it.

I downloaded artkive. You take photos of their papers and can eventually turn them into a little book.

I also am going to start doing what the pp posted above with his special papers and big accomplishments.

This sounds like a great idea.

A binder with those clear sleeves. They send EVERYTHING home with my Kindergartener.

Each kid has a big storage tub. Everything gets dated and placed in the tub. Eventually the plan is to scan it all.
