Recording our holiday memories – scrapbooking with kids 18



How do you record your holiday memories?

My boys are very fortunate, blogging has brought us so many fabulous experiences as a family and I want to make sure that we are thankful for them and also record them so we can look back at our experiences and adventures.

OUR HOLIDAY SCRAPBOOK

One of the ways we do this is by scrapbooking.  Now this isn’t the sort of fancy scrapbooking that some people do, it is more something that I do with the boys and let them take control of.  Last year Maxi scrapbooked our Florida adventure.

The year before Mini recorded our adventures on memory stones.

This year inspired by my friend Jennie Maizels, we had added some drawing and scketing to our scrapbook.

There is something wonderful about see photo’s in the flesh and we have been testing out HP’s instant ink, which means that I don’t have to worry about printing costs as I have an annual subscription for ink and knew how much it will cost.

Scrapbooking is a great way to record your memories, but also to encourage the kids to keep up with their writing over the summer avoiding the dreading learning gap. Do you scrapbook with your kids?  If not then why not give it a go and enter the Center Parcs August challenge.

I also love the idea of putting together a travel journal kit for the kids to take away with them.
