We feed these creations to the bin monster after nursery grin

SmellySourdough Sun 20-Mar-16 10:23:42

they are fucking ugly aren't they?
we will keep them for a few days and the they go in the bin to be replaced with the next creation

4 pint milk bottles with a cut out piece of paper seems to be the current favourite...

"I think Granny would love it" is a good one - my poor MiL gets a lot of shite from us!

Gives me the rage.

We get letters from school asking for cereal boxes, milk bottles etc. And it's say 'it a great way to recycle and reduce your how much goes to land fill'

No it does. Because I am getting everyone else rubbish back with Glue all over it so I can't recycle it.

Of course the question of 'do you like it' is still met with 'wow that great!' So the kids are non the wiser I am thinking of the best way to cling in the bun and compress it so I can get even more crap in to grin

"Oh that's lovely darling" <thinking 'what the hell is it?'>
"Is that a bird that you've drawn on there?" <dear god, what is that thing?>
Most things go on display on top of DD's wardrobe where she can see them and I don't have to look at them
Drawings are put up for a while and then boxed away. We're getting to the stage where I'm going to ask her to have a sort out.

The worst from DD's pre school that they feel the need to give me are the 'art work' of one sheet of paper and three random stickers on. Why?? Plus my house is overrun with stickers as it is, I don't need more given back to me.

I kept the best stuff. Most other bits we displayed for a week or so then asked DC if they wanted it in their room, if not it mysteriously vanished!

My son has managed to smash most of his creations before we've even returned home to look at them, but a few weeks ago he brought home some kind of ancient 'block print' still covered in a never drying ink. I asked him to put it on the widowsill to dry and then is disappeared confused into the bin.

DrAmandaBentley Sun 20-Mar-16 11:06:00

My mum used to keep all of my creations, nearly 30 years later she still has them all in a large bag. The ones she put on display (dried pasta stuck on with glue) I used to pick off and eat, sometimes months later. I was a very odd child.

SmellySourdough Sun 20-Mar-16 11:12:03

we keep the best (in adult eyes) pieces. but 99% go in the bin.

We have an 19yr old christmas log she hated cotton wool so its just a stick with glitter on it grin we put it next to the tree Dd says its done ironically but i secretly think shes chuffed with her efforts

the great thing about going to the park is that dc are not able to make 'art'
they just carry home lots to pebbles and sticks

paxillin Sun 20-Mar-16 15:04:53

Park, you say? Mummy, look! Oh wow, you can stand on one foot! Mummy look! Oh wow, you can swing on a rope! Mummy, look! Chrissakes, am I damaging their self-esteem by saying "that's not special"?
