Scapbooking with Kids

Many adults look at Scrapbooking as a time to be very creative and precise. They appoach the hobby as a time to show off their amazing design skills and look at each page as a masterpiece.

But when you scrapbook with kids, you have to adjust your expectations and allow the child to explore and use their own ideas – even if isn’t the way you would design the page.

Last weekend, I pulled out my supplies (most of which I received from Scrapbuck) and gave each of my children a stack of pictures and free reign over all the stuff. They picked their paper, stickers, embellishments, glue – anything they wanted to use out of the box.

The results were priceless: a huge mess (which they helped clean up), 2 pages that are less than perfect by some standards… but absolute masterpieces in their eyes and a whole bunch of ‘memories’.

Do you scrapbook with your kids? I’d love to hear how you make memories with the kids in your life!
