Make a School Year Memory Book

Posted by

Memory Book Craft Project
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.

Some examples:

Memory Books

  • Field Trips
  • Science Projects
  • Art Projects
  • Friends
  • A Fun Day
  • A Silly Memory
  • Autographs
  • 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!

How do you help your kids remember their school year?
