When I was a kid I thought it would be great to have a photographic memory, but as the years and experiences ticked by I realised that it was a GOOD thing not to be able to remember every single thing *grin*
However, when you're little and you've built something fabulous out of Lego, or you've created an masterpiece that Van Gogh would be proud of on a large aquadoodle mat (we like aquadoodle deals here on PlayPennies) it can be utterly heartwrenching to see your art evaporate or have to dismantle your Lego model.
Taking photographs of your youngsters efforts is a great way of getting round this 'trauma' and is something I've been doing for a while - me and my youngest are avid Lego fans, we build some great things and always take photographs of our endeavours so we can remember them.
Michelle over on ParentHacks has taken this idea a step further by printing the pictures, framing them and hanging them on her child's wall.
I think that's a rather nice idea and if you decide to give this a go, I hope you've got LOTS of wall space as I have a feeling it's going to be very popular with the kids.
