a parent, we want to remember every little detail of our
children's life as they grow up. As a scrapbooker, we want
those memories to be put on pages and preserved for years
and years. We also want these memories to be as perfect as
the day they occurred. We have the perfect title, detailed
journaling, matching embellishments and of course the
photos. The more I look back on my albums that I have
completed; I realized the one thing I am missing is my
child's stories of the event told in their words.
Then I started thinking what better way to capture those
memories then by letting them create their own scrapbook
pages and complete album of themselves. By the age of three,
a child can use a glue stick and place die-cuts and stickers
to a page on their own. By the time they are in school, they
can write their own journaling, before long, they would be
able to create their own personalize journal of their life.
Let them use their imagination and be creative, even if they
just use the left over scraps from you. There are also
several different scrapbook kits that are suitable for
children to put together. Before you know it, they will me
master scrappers and creating their own layouts from
As your child begins their scrapbook, you will be able to
bond by doing something you both enjoy doing. You child will
thank you as they go back over their life journal and enjoy
watch themselves group and change in their own handwriting.
These will be cherished for years and years by their own
children and grandchildren.
