As the year winds down kids love to reflect on all they’ve done and all they’ve learned. Help them preserve those memories with a Memory Book they make themselves!
- Paper for pages (at least 4-6 per child)
- Craft supplies: markers, crayons, scissors, glue
- Stickers or other embellishments
- Any photos, craft projects, or work the children have done throughout the year
- Cover materials: any of the following would work well:
- Construction paper or card stock (two pieces per child)
- 3-ring Binder or folder for securing the pages.
- A Custom Book Cover to use over a binder or notebook.
Start by having the kids write a word or phrase at the top of each page to guide them; these could also be printed ahead of time.
- Field Trips
- Science Projects
- Art Projects
- A Fun Day
- A Silly Memory
- A message from my teacher (or Mrs.________)
Then go to work, have the kids write or draw on each page. If you have pictures or projects from the year they can include those.
Make your cover with a hole punch and some yarn or string, or you could simply staple them together.
You get a fun activity to fill those last few days of school, and the kids get a great keepsake!
