After every vacation it's great to have pictures and small souvenirs that bring back memories of your trip. One fabulous way to create these memories is by making a scrapbook of your family vacation. While eliminating, "Honey, where were we again when this was taken?", it also gives your children (toddlers and up) something to do on a rainy day.
To start out with, get your children in the habit of saving one thing from each place you visit. It can be anything from a restaurant napkin to a postcard from a national park, or your children's drawings of the theme park your family has just visited. Another great tip is to bring along a disposable camera for your children. It's a great inexpensive way to allow your children to feel included, and at the same time get their point of view of the trip.
On a rainy day (hopefully you won't have any of those) or a night where you and your family want to take it easy, start putting your scrapbook together. The essential elements that are needed can easily be brought with you: photo-album or scrapbook, scissors, glue, construction paper, stickers and markers. If you feel really ambitious, take the film that has already been used to a 1-hour film-developing center.
Now that you have all the materials ready, it's time to begin. Here are a few suggestions that can help make the craft session run smoothly:
Enjoy your new scrapbook! The memories will last a lifetime.
