Scrapbooking Your Children’s Memories, Papers and Drawings
1. Take a photo of your children with their artwork.
Wesley was 5 in this photo and had drawn a dinosaur on his little magna doodle. I snapped a photo before he erased it.
2. Use hand prints as embellishments.
I was constantly receiving projects with Wesley’s hand prints when he was in preschool. I saved a few of my favorites, cut them out, and used them on different pages.
3. Use the silly things kids say as a title or for journaling.
While on this boardwalk in Massachusetts Wesley stopped at EVERY hole and asked the same thing; “A monster in the hole, Mama?”. I definitely made sure to add that to the page. On the birthday page I asked him what it meant to be “4″ and journaled his answers.
4.Take a photo of them making a special project holiday project.
I just love looking back on Wesley’s letters to Santa. Instead of keeping it folded up in a box I added it to my scrapbook.
5. Use something fun that your child made to prepare for a vacation or other important event.
When we were planning a trip to Florida we made a countdown calendar for Wesley. I made it on a 12×12 piece of card stock knowing that I would add it to our Disney scrapbook.
