Scrapbooking Ideas for Kids
Many times at auctions, or estate sales, a box of books will
turn up a real treasure, like a scrapbook that was kept by
someone in their youth and sometimes through their adulthood. The
book could be 50 or 60 years old, and a source of great fun to
look at the pictures, news clippings, and personal mementoes.
The hobby of keeping such collections is enjoying a resurgence
of popularity, with people of all ages finding new and inventive
ways to record special events or occasions in their lives.
Scrapbooking ideas for kids can be very basic to start with,
because once they catch on to the fun, they'll start developing
their own sense of style and preference for decorating.
A scrapbook with reasonable quality paper makes a great
special occasion gift for a child, along with glue, scissors, and
perhaps a simple book on creating your own special treasure trove
Give them a start on their hobby by helping with the first
entry, to celebrate the occasion such as a birthday. Cover a page
in the gift paper that the book was wrapped in, and then tape or
glue a photo of them in the center of the page. A package of 2" x
4" white labels is a handy part of any scrapbooking package, as
they provide a clear area to put text, and can be stuck over top
of an older label with outdated information. This is a handy way
of adding your caption or comments to highly decorated pages.
Colored pencils, crayons, markers, and other artistic tools
will also contribute to their enjoyment, as they use them to
enhance a page with a photo of their new puppy, by drawing bones,
mailmen, balls, and other doggy subjects around the picture.
Scrapbooking ideas for kids are only limited by their
imagination in what they collect and use, from photos, to news
clippings, souvenir programs from concerts, hair ribbons, ticket
stubs from movies and more. They can even make mini scrapbooks of
things like a visit to Grandma's, and give it to her as a
