I don’t know about you but with the end of the school year, I am drowning in my son’s artwork he brought home from school. He’s only 7 and it’s always been really hard for my to throw away ANY of his precious artwork so it’s accumulating. I’ve found some creative ways to display his artwork in the house but what about all of the others that I still want to keep as a memory?
Thanks to technology, there’s a few cool ways to store your child’s artwork without it taking up a ton of room in your house!
With Keepy, you can upload pictures of your child’s artwork, school tests, everyday crafts and more. What’s great about Keepy is that you or your child can record video and audio comments to each picture to enrich those memories even more. You’re also able to share with grandparents and other family too so they can check it out and even leave audio comments.
If you have more than one child, Keepy lets you have separate profiles for each one.
There’s three different pricing plans to choose from. The basic free plan only lets you upload 15 photos a month while the $39.99 a year plan lets you upload unlimited artwork.
Canvsly lets you upload your child’s creations to the app and control the audience so only people you want to see it can access it. Like other apps, you can keep separate profiles for each child.
What’s great about Canvsly is they have a partnership with Fujifilm and you can shop from the app and order your child’s artwork to be on products like canvas prints and mugs!
Canvsly is available for $2.99
Art My Kid Made
With the Art My Kid Made app, it’s more a social network of showing off your kid’s creative projects than storing it for your own memories. You can upload the artwork to the app and it saves it via Evernote or Dropbox. It’s almost like an Instagram for your kid’s art as when you upload it, you can then edit it, add stickers and other effects and then share via social media. You can then add it to your “fridge” for others to see and also view other kids artwork also.
Take pictures of your child’s artwork, upload it to ArtKive and then tag the photo with your child’s name, grade, date and any other relevant info. You can then share the artwork with friends and family or you can turn the artwork into a book or order it to be created on other products.
ArtKive even has a concierge service where you send them all your child’s artwork where it’s then professionally photographed and then digitized and uploaded to the ArtKive app. They will then send you an e-book and a hardcopy book of your child’s artwork – saving you the time of doing it yourself!
GrooveBook is not an app that stores pictures of your child’s artwork, but you can take pictures of the artwork on your phone and then upload it to the GrooveBook app where they will then send you a keepsake photo book of up to 100 photos for only $2.99, plus shipping and handling. You could upload all of your kid’s artwork monthly for a fun keepsake!
