Look, we know that every parent thinks their child is a little genius whose drawings are worth a special spot on the refrigerator door. But what happens when you have a few kids, or one who really embraces her new identity as a mini Picasso?

Eventually you’re going to be stuck with either a ton of artwork cluttering up your space or the hurt feelings of a member of your family. At least, that used to be the case. But now there’s a solution, thanks to ArtKive.

ArtKive archives your children’s artwork in a lovely, hand-bound book that you can keep for years to come, either as a proud display in your living room or in a special place on their bookshelf.

At the end of every school year, parents can round up all the art that has been created by their little Matisses, Kahlos and Monets, and send it directly to ArtKive for a fee ($150 for up to 50 pieces of art, $200 for up to 100). Then, professional photographers at ArtKive’s offices take pictures of each and every piece, be it a sculpture, painting or sketch. All the pieces make it into the book and some even get their place in ArtKive’s digital museum.

Taking children’s art into the digital age? Sounds like a worthwhile project to us!
