As the old saying goes: Time flies when you're having fun! Such is the case with children. They grow up in the blink of an eye, often leaving parents with large quantities of photos. A great way to organize these masses of pictures before they overtake that cupboard is through scrapbooking regularly. Get your child involved in this practice, and he will create a memento in the scrapbook itself. This activity is a slight variation on the method, swapping expensive albums and pages for everyday envelopes. Your child will enjoy using multiple envelopes to create an accordion-style photo book that folds out and folds neatly back up.
As you work on this project with your child, he will improve his fine motor skills as he cuts, paints, draws, and glues. Writing captions will also strengthen his writing ability. However, the greatest benefit of this project is the time you will spend together compiling fantastic photos, reminiscing about fun times, and preserving lasting memories.
