Is your kids’ artwork piling up and you love it, but you need a solution to the clutter?
If you’re wondering how to keep children’s artwork digitally so you can recycle some of the old masterpieces without guilt, you’ve come to the right place.
As a mom to three kids, many beautiful pieces of art are brought into my home on a daily basis. Whether from art class at school, a project at home, or just doodles to hang up in my office, my kids certainly love to create art.
As an avid follower of Marie Kondo’s Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up — albeit a work in progress — I know there has to be a better way to save my kids artwork digitally versus holding on to every single piece of paper that gets a scribble or a doodle on it.
I love the artwork, but we’re quickly running out of places to store it!
I know there are several ways to preserve your kids artwork without letting it run amuck on your household.
How to Store Kids’ Artwork
Some of the ideas to store children’s artwork I have tried include:
• Binders. The collapsible kind.
• Folders. Writing their names on the front, and they quickly get filled up to the brim.
• Taking Photos. I’ve tried to store the kids’ artwork digitally kids by snapping photos of the art pieces on my smartphone. However, I’ve found it to go into my massive abyss of galleries and I’ll never be able to find it again when I need it.
These methods are short-lived, for me anyway, and I’m back to clutter city again.
And that’s when I finally found the solution to it: how to save your child’s artwork digitally, in an affordable and easy way.
I can’t wait to share it with you so you can be saved from the paper clutter you’re hiding under. As a bonus, it won’t make you feel guilty when you decide to recycle your child’s art creations.
Here’s what it is and how it works.
How to Save Kids Artwork Digitally
It’s called Scribble. Cool, catchy name, right?
Well, it’s even better than a fun name. It actually works! And it’s the easiest way to turn your kid’s artwork into a hardcover book.
For busy parents who are trying to keep their lives as streamlined as possible, it’s the ultimate solution for when you want to store your kids’ artwork and be able to find it anytime you want.
Here’s how Scribble will make your life easier and finally help you regain that kitchen counter, drawer, shelf… you get it.

1. Snap a photo of your child’s art.
When your child brings home another work of art from school or draws a cool cartoon character at home, take a photo of it with your Smartphone.
The best part is, you don’t need to be a great photographer to do it. You don’t even have to take an absolute perfect shot. It is designed for busy parents who simply take even an imperfect shot of the artwork and let Scribble handle the rest.
They’ll take it from there:
2. Let Scribble make your work-of-art come to life.
Then, it will automatically straighten the photo, remove any distractions in the background, and choose background colors that complement your kids artwork nicely so the pages look brilliant.
3. Order your book when the pages are filled up with artwork.
Once the school year comes to a close, or you’ve filled up enough pages of kids artwork digitally to your heart’s content, order your book. It will ship to your door quickly and your child will love to see them as the author of their very own art-filled book.
Now you can recycle all of those doodles, scribbles, and drawings without feeling the guilt. And of course, you can always save those “favorites” as hard copies. There are pieces of artwork that my children have made through the years that I’ll always hold on to, even if I snap a digital “copy” of it.
Now, this is a two-part review because I’m currently working on my kids’ Scribble books as we speak. I began mine at the start of the school year a few weeks back and, as they bring home new projects, I’ve been adding them to the book. Once the school year comes to a close, I’ll wrap up the book and present it to them as a gift: your art, printed! How cool is that?
I’ll be sure to update this post at that time with photos of their masterpieces. And I hope it has inspired you to turn your kid’s artwork into a book and declutter your life… if even just a bit. :)
