Scrapbooking Childrens Favorite Stories


Countless memories are built during the formative childhood days. If there's an excellent means to record them down in some ways, it'll be scrapbooking.

True, we can't possibly capture every single event, but we can definitely scrap those more memorable ones onto pages.

If you've decided to scrapbook together with your kid, besides guiding them with little prompts on the journaling, you'll probably need some neat ideas to pull in those best memories.

Here's various hot-selling "stories" that you and your child can scrapbook about:

A) Story of the Birth of Baby

Kids love to read stories about themselves as babies. Having pages surrounding your child's birth will make him or her feel how much he or she is wanted by the family.

- Photo of mommy pregnant with the baby.

- Who waited for the birth?

- Who came for the hospital visit?

- Weight, length, doctor, hospital details.

- Feelings of parents about the birth of your child.

- Funny stories that happened.

- Documenting baby milestones.

- What's your kid's favorite bedtime stories?

- Photo of your kid's favorite toys.

As there's a chance that there's no photos taken during the birth, a good alternative would be to do a page on significant or historical events that happened on the day or year of your kid's birth. How to source for such information? Visit www.dmarie.com/timecap to pick up such data.

Another idea is for your kid to do a page on his or her name and birthday. Record down your kid's feelings about his or her name. Why did you and your husband come up with such a name? What's the meaning of the name? Find out what famous people share your kid's name. Find out what famous birthdays share your kid's birthday. What's the best birthday party your child had?

B) Story of Family

Family members are among the most influential people that influence a child during the growing years. Having your child scrapbook about the family will reinforce the importance of family connectedness in his or her life.

- What does your child like about each family member?

- Does your girl or boy like being part of the family? Why?

- Does your kid like being the first-born, middle-born, in-between or baby of the family?

- What does your child like about his or her grandparents?

- What are the family chores that your kid handle?

- Does your kid have a favorite pet? What does your child like about the pet? Get your kid to draw a picture of the pet.

- Funny incidents that took place in the family.

- Typical day at home. What's the daily activities that take place?

- List of fun things your kid did with the family like sporting events, camping, and picnics.

- What's your kid's most memorable memories about the family?

- Record the cultural heritage of the family.

- Suggest that your kid draw a family portrait.

C) Story of School Days

School is where the child will improve his or her fine-motor, language, art, math, problem-solving, expanding ideas and social skills. Many unforgettable memories will be formed here and your child would want to scrap these days.

- Favorite subject at school. Why?

- Favorite teacher. What does your kid like about this teacher?

- Describe a typical day at school.

- Who does your kid usually sit with at lunch?

- Who are your kid's favorite classmates? What do your child like about them?

- What are the memorable field trips?

D) Story of Friends

Friends are crucial in the development of a kid's growth. By scrapbooking the theme of friendship, he or she will learn the importance of friends, and to dwell on the positive aspects of friendship.

- Who are your kid's best friends?

- What do your kid like about them?

- What do your kids usually do when they are together?

- Where are the places your kid love to hang out with them? Why?

- What are the qualities your kid admire in his or her friends?

E) Story of Dreams

Children has the amazing ability to daydream, imagine and dream big! You might want to encourage your kid to explore all the different possibilities. You'll probably have to give more guidance about journaling future jobs, things they want to achieve, homes and the lifestyle they want to lead.

- What does like your kid want to become when he or she grows up? Why?

- What are the duties included in the job?

- Who are the famous/ordinary people with the career your kid admires? Photo of these people?

- List of top ten things your kid wanted most to do in his or her life.

- What does kids imagine he or she will be doing during free time?

- If your kid can have superpower, what does your kid want it to be? Why?

- If money is no object, what would you child want to do with the money. Why?

These are some of the common themes you and your kid can cover. There's many more. But these ideas will be a leaping pad to more ideas.

Happy scrapping childhood stories!
