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?

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.
