I haven’t yet entered the paper stage of parenting. You know what I’m referencing — that bittersweet era where your child barrels through the door with Yet Another Art Project and you (1) smile, and then (2) rack your brain trying to make space between Another Art Project and Still Another Art Project until your entire house has exploded with Mead products. Fear not — the Internet has a solution. Enjoy three unbelievable ways to turn your kid’s drawings into a keepsake you’ll both treasure forever:
