I have shown you how I have a wall featuring some of the kids drawings, today I will show you how to display the remainder of their drawings.
I love the creativity and love that my kids put into each of their drawings and the little notes they write on them, “you are the best mum, I love you”. How can I throw away a piece of paper that gives so much love? But, if I kept every bit of paper I’d have a mountain in no time. Instead, I scan the pictures and add to a digital photo frame which showcases all the drawings they have created along with their school photos.
Gather your pile of drawings.
Purchase a SD/Memory Card for the photo scanner and digital frame (you will only need one). Place card into the photo scanner.
Scan the drawings. Placing the drawing facedown, I use a Kaiser Baas Photo Scanner. When scanning I write the kids name and year on a post it note and place on the drawings so I know who created it and when.
Rotate all images so they will be displayed the correct direction. This is easily to manipulate in the menu settings.
Once finished, remove the SD card from photo scanner and insert into the digital frame.
Display frame and enjoy your little ones creations.
This would be a fantastic gift to give grandparents, aunts or uncles for Christmas.
