You Can't Stop Time But You Can Hold Onto Your Child's Creations For A Trip Back In Time


The things that your children create can never be duplicated. The pictures they draw, the stories they write and the creations they make are precious. These are the things that you will love looking back on when your child is grown and has children of his or her own. Unfortunately, they can also take up a lot of space around the home. Instead of tossing out your children's creations, you can store them safely and out of the way. Below, you will learn how to hold onto those items from the day they are created until the day you reminisce over them.

Today's Displays

You've run out of room on your refrigerator and need somewhere else to display all of the artwork your child has made. A spool of twine, clean-remove hooks and some clothespins or paper clips are all you need to create a showcase on your wall.

Simply install the hooks on the wall, wrap the twine around them to create a line to hang the artwork on. You can zig-zag the twine using multiple hooks to allow for many pieces of artwork to be displayed on one wall.

Store The Creations Digitally

One option you have is to store the creations digitally. Take pictures of the artwork and creations and scan the stories that have been written and create a file on your computer, on a disk and maybe even on a cloud storage service.

Making digital copies of all of these things will make it easier for you to take a trip down memory lane in your spare time and ensure that you have each and every item forever. You won't have to worry about any damage occurring from moisture, age, fire or natural disaster.

Use Climate-Controlled Storage Facilities

There are probably a lot of things around your home that you don't use but don't want to let go of. Your child's first Christmas pajamas, his or her bring-home outfit, the toys that he or she loved but outgrew, etc. You don't have to get rid of these things to make room for new items. Instead, find a climate-controlled storage facility near you where you can put these things.

This is a much better option than tucking it all away in your basement or attic. The climate in your attic and basement isn't ideal for storing these precious items for several years. The high heat of the attic and the damp conditions in the basement can destroy the things that you want to hold onto for years.

Since you can't get the days of your child's youth back, the best thing you can do is hold onto some of the things that you loved about those early days and share them with your child later. Contact a storage facility, such as Redondo Van & Storage, for more information about storage.
