School is about to go back, and if you are anything like me, means a bit of tidying up from the end of school last year. The kids bring home all their books and artworks they have created throughout the year. It's always busy at this time too with upcoming christmas organisation so these items usually get put in a box, in the cupboard to sort out later. Later is now here!
I do love this time though, going through all their creations and books to see what they have been learning. I don't like to throw these little keepsakes away but the problem is where it keep it all? So I go through and pick out all the best examples of their work, artworks and awards and photograph or scan to then design into a book. Sometimes the kids do come to me throughout the year and say to me "this one is for the book" if they are particularly keen. Which is great that they too are learning to appreciate collecting memories.
To start this for your own children it's super easy, just hop online and order your Creative Kids Art Box. Collect all your child's artworks, drawings, collages and anything they have made that you want to keep a memory of. Send it back to us and let the magic happen!
The Preschool Years; this time in children’s lives are in fact the most creative. They haven’t been told what they should or shouldn’t do so they can freely create! It is a great visual record of their early years and captures their view of the world as they are growing up. We do something a little different with these books. Each artwork needs a little explanation from the child to accompany the image in the book. This is because sometimes the explanation is just too funny. You may just see a bunch of scribbles, but in fact it is you and so and so having a garden party with lots of cake and bubbles!
Through the Primary School Years, Art for children is a fun activity and a chance to express themselves, they are in fact learning, but, don’t tell them! You can also include stories they have written, awards and other keys elements of their learning journey in their book.
Our designers will professionally photograph, scan and edit your creations into either a book or frame of your choice. This will be emailed to you for approval before going to print. In 2-3 weeks your beautiful book or frame will be sent to you to be put on display and appreciated, along with all the originals.
Why not start a new family tradition. By doing this each year you can see your child's development. At the beginning of each book the child has to answer a few questions regarding their favourite things. We do this because we know how quickly things change and it's fun to look back on. Some of the questions we ask are; favourite colour, favourite toy and favourite food.
Some may say "why not do this myself, rather than pay someone else"? Well you can, but it is a lot harder than you think! We use professional photographers and high-end scanners to ensure the best possible image of your child's creation. With editing expertise essential in removing creases, grey shadows and any unwanted backgrounds like lines from a page or show-through. Our designers ensure your child's artworks are beautifully put together and printed professionally using only premium quality materials.
OK stop procrastinating, lets do it! Send us your children’s creations, and we will turn them into an bespoke custom book or frame today.
