Childhood of a baby seems difficult at the moment your baby is growing up, but it is the most beautiful time of a parent’s life which he/she realizes later!
It is more beautiful for the kid, especially when he sees his photos and belongings after he grows up.
Those photographs and things have the potential to take him back to his childhood and remember his specific memories related to his belongings like his bat, gloves, balls, photos, etc.
These things not only act as a time machine for childhood memories but also to remind them of the happy side of life.
Also, to remind them that they don’t always have to hustle and win every competition or award and that sometimes coming back and sitting in the arms of their mother and talking to their father over a cup of coffee is also a good option available to them.
As a parent, you need to preserve these things, but preserving everything for the coming 20-50 years will get difficult and messy.
You can smartly organize these memories and keep in an uncluttered manner which are ready to be experienced anytime they want.
The following are the 5 things to preserve your child’s memories forever and ever!
- A Painting From Photo.
As a parent, you were many hats, sometimes of a friend, sometimes of a teacher, and sometimes of a photographer as well!
You love to maintain the book of firsts and all those photos which go into the family album. You also like to share them with the kid’s grandparents and draw every eyeball you can.
It becomes essential to preserve these before these get lost in time. You can get a handmade painting of these.
A handmade painting is the most natural way to preserve a photo; it holds a lot of emotional value and stays on the walls of your living room forever and ever.
When it comes to getting a portrait from a photo, there are 2 major medium options to choose from, A Charcoal Sketch and an Oil Painting.
A charcoal sketch is less expensive as compared to an oil painting both have their pros and cons. A charcoal sketch gives B&W old memory feel to the portrait and a colorful oil painting lasts for more than 60 to 70 years!
Whatever your choice maybe, you can get it delivered anywhere in the world at the ease of your home by visiting this website and placing your custom order, you can also add customizations like adding a name, date and many more.
- The Spelling Tests & Test Papers.
To let them learn that it is essential to learn from mistakes and it is actually alright to commit some, and if they didn’t make mistakes like the one they did in their test papers and spelling tests, how would they have learned the correct ones?
These papers are worth preserving so that they could show to their children about how making mistakes is a part of learning.
Apart from that, it gets humorous to refer the old papers and display them to the whole family especially when your son or daughter gets married or when there is a small relative gathering.
- Sketch Books
Yes! Sketching and Drawing Books.
With time going rapidly and them growing to be an adult, it happens in everyone’s case that they forget their ability and talent to paint or sketch and get busy with stressful chores of life.
Keep these with you and show them whenever your children feel stressed and remind them of the importance of art in a person’s life.
And how important it is to leave everything and start painting on a blank paper of whatever they want to, how it will make them more productive and decrease their stress by pushing themselves into a creative zone, and how it will make them a child again!
Well, be very specific while preserving the clothes that you are not doing it to give it to their children or siblings. These are very special for them, and it is essential to remind them of their childhood whenever they feel through these clothes.
And for that, you need to preserve them, and once they grow up just hand it over to them. Trust me, they would be very thankful and who knows a collection of these can turn out to be an excellent birthday gift!
*While preserving clothes, use a plastic zip pouch to avoid any dust and insects.
I did save the best one for the last!
Toys, there are so many of them.
Their cars, bats, balls, gloves, and every other thing they cried for when it was lost.
Toys hold a lot of emotional value for a kid; they are almost their best friends during childhood.
Do you remember them sleeping with their toys, talking to their toys, and also dressing up their dolls?
So they deserve to be preserved till they grow up than anything else.
