If you have a kid who loves to sketch, doodle and draw little characters, you know the feeling of wanting to keep each and every one in pristine condition.
While you could box them up and keep them in storage, we have some innovative ideas for you to keep the art around a little while longer.
Child's Own Studio, for example, can turn those sketches into reality. This company translates the color, the oblong shapes and the pure cuteness of each child's drawing and turns them into stuffed animals! Take a look at the gallery here.
Formia Design also turns drawings into physical objects. Only this designer turns drawings into pendants, key chains and charms. How proud will your child be when you put on their original design and head for work?
Some innovative parents have also turned their child's artwork into a photo book. All you have to do is scan and save a digital copy of the artwork. Then you can pull out the book for story time or show off the art to visitors. There are multiple companies that will create photo books for you. Click here to check out PicaBoo's example.
Now that you have digital copies of your child's artwork, you can upload them to Grafighters.com. The site animates the little creature drawings and pits them against each other for a knock-out duel! It's fun to watch something you've created instantly turn into a cartoon.
And while Etsy shop owner AndieMarie is no longer turning child's drawings into custom, hand-embroidered masterpieces, crafty parents can still take the idea and make on for themselves.
