What do you do with your kids artwork they bring home from school?

When my son was in preschool he was always bringing these treasers home that he made at school. They laid around the house and either got pitched in the trash (I always feel bad about that but I hate clutter) or I started to put them into a binder.
This year he is in kindergarten and I decided we need to keep these treasers in an organized way. We created this really cute binder with each month of the school year called out and we will be filling this binder up all year long. You can see our creative treasure at www.kidapproved.blogspot.com. Anyway this brings me to my question, what do you do with all of your kids art projects and special papers that they bring home from school?

Even though it kills me, I throw it out! I keep several rotating on the fridge or hung in the kitchen.After a few weeks or so, I throw some out and keep a precious few in a large bin. I do like the idea of photographing them, I may try that!
I have a scrapbook for my first born. The book contain the cutest thing from her first drawing of a bird to even her first attempt to write her name. She apprecaites the book very much now. I'm glad I did it. Sad to say I did not have the same drive to do a scarpbook for my second one - what a pity..hmm.. perhaps it's not too late to start.. ;)
I've used mod-podge and made book/journal covers, decorated blocks, used the back of them to write thank yous to relatives, cut them up into tags for Christmas gifts, lots of stuff! My kids love to fingerpaint and they make terrific cards and such! My favorites I scrapbook for posterity.
