Speaking Point: Whether you child is still young or they’re grown with their own children, scrapbooking is a way to not only spend time together, it’s a way to share your history. Whether it’s a recent trip to Disneyland or a birthday, when you scrapbook with your children, it’s an opportunity to share something from your past while creating a memento your children will cherish forever.
Speaking Point: • My Grandma gave me a photo album for my high school graduation of all the photos she had of me growing up and it was not only the best present I got for graduation, it is one of my most precious possessions.
Speaking Point: • Scrapbooking can be intimidating, but you do not have to be “artistic” to create something meaningful and beautiful to you and your children.
Speaking Point: • They always say “it’s the thought that counts” and when you scrapbook with you children, the thought counts so much because you not only care about keeping those memories forever, you care enough to create them together.
Speaking Point: • At Scrapbook Rehab, we talk about remembering the little things. You don’t need to scrapbook only the big events; you can take pictures of a regular day in the backyard.
Speaking Point: • Plan your pages in advance so that you know what pictures you want to take. For example: o Let’s say it’s a rainy day and you’ve decided you want to spend some time with your child scrapbooking. Don’t scrapbook something that happened in the past that maybe your child doesn’t remember. Create something for them to scrapbook that day. Put on a small play or take some pictures of them doing their favorite activity such as, playing video games or singing on the wii, or simply reading a book in their bed. Then set up the table full of your scrapbook supplies and make pages of the day. You’ll love that it’s day-to-day life that you’re remembering and your kids will love to see what their room looked like or what book they were reading when they were younger.
