In the world of parenting hacks, this one is a keeper. Offspring/Lifehacker’s genius idea to create a private Instagram account for your child and their artwork is something that will save you from the, “Should I toss it or should I save it?” dilemma.

Okay, okay so now you’re thinking, “I don’t want my kiddo’s creations all over social media.” We get it. These are private pics that your pint-sized Picasso poured their heart into, keeping your kiddo’s masterpieces away from online trolls. Instead of putting it all out there for the world of social media to see, create a private Instagram account. This allows you to choose who follows the account and prevents non-followers from seeing the content.

Just remember to let your family and friends know about the account! Not only does this give you the perfect place to stash your kiddo’s art (or at least pics of it), but it also allows grandma, aunts, uncles and anyone else you want to view your child’s masterpieces.

You can also use an IG-connected service to create cute photo books of your child’s artwork later on.
