Make a photo calendar out of your kids’ seasonal art projects

Amy's come up with a new twist on the annual photo calendar gift:

Last year before Christmas, I scanned 12 pieces of my kids' art and uploaded the images to an online photo place (Shutterfly, but you could use any service that does photo gifts). I used the images to make a calendar for the grandparents, and matched seasonal art with appropriate months (pumpkins in October, flowers in May). The calendars turned out beautifully and I was able to put all that artwork to good use. The grandparents had a chance to see what the kids had been up to that year in school and had new art for their walls each month.

    I have been collecting the huge pile of artwork with no idea what to do with it. I love to give personalized gifts and this is just the best idea! Thanks for sharing it!
