This school year I wanted my children to take a more active role in their scrapbooks. I love to capture bits of them in the photos that they draw and their handwriting. This year they are filling out prompt sheets and I plug their work into a template. It gets them writing and creating and allows me to capture this stage of their life. It is a win-win in my book. My kids LOVE to create. What is the saying...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Tonight I had a couple more prompt sheets for them to complete. Ellie started doing them and when Mia and Quinn saw her, they immediately wanted to do theirs as well. Another win-win-win.
Here is the scene tonight after dinner at our house...
Here are a few of the pages they have created thus far for their album....
Papers are from Designer Digitals.
I think it is so important and a WHOLE LOT OF FUN to include your children in memory-keeping. If I say "will you create...." my kids, especially my girls are usually running for the markers before I can get the words out. They love to create and will jump on any opportunity to do so. There are so many great qualities that can develop through creativity...self-confidence....self-expression....open-mindedness....and the list goes on.
What ways are using to involve your children in memory-keeping? I would sure love to hear.
