We want to partner with you in organizing for the new school year. Now is the time to go through your home and either store or dispose of last year’s artwork collection.
I personally save around five to ten favorites, photograph the rest and then pitch or recycle what I can.
This year, after your child’s art has been brought home, enjoyed, photographed, and shutterfly-ed, consider donating it to the First Arts and Crafts Swap.
Your child’s artwork will be carefully kept and then given to a member of First church who needs their day brightened in the only way a child’s art can. We encourage you to attach a note or write your child’s name on the artwork so that a relationship can form between giver and receiver, but it can also be completely anonymous if that is what your family prefers.
Your clutter is our treasured commodity; we would love to show off the children’s schoolwork in the church lobby on a monthly basis. A monthly Arts and Crafts show featuring the children’s own schoolwork would be a great addition to our ministry.
This is a win-win situation for the parents and the church. You can declutter your counters and desk space while blessing the members of the church with your child’s gifts, talents and story.
