WFMW: What To Do With ALL THOSE Coloring Pages!

My kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to color. I didn't like throwing their creations in the trash, so I started saving their works of art in a binder. When it's time for thank you cards (such as following birthdays or play dates), I pull out a generic piece (i.e, one without "I Love You, Mom! or something similar) and allow them to choose which work of art to pass along to the thank you card recipient. All we have to do is have them sign their names and add a sentiment such as "Thank you for the birthday gift!"
