How To Get Started?

1. Discuss with your child if they would like to create a scrapbook based on the Kid’s Camp Activity Calendar. Or, if they would like to make something more personal like their first visit to the zoo.

2. Help them break their idea into different sections

Example 1: Summer Camp Activities

  • Page one could have pictures of their favourite moments from the summer cleaning day
  • Page two could have a rhyme or a poem that they composed  
  • Page three could be a memory of the lemonade game
  • Page four could be a montage of pictures of their finger puppets
  • Page five could be on how they identify emotions

So on and so forth.

Example 2: Visit to the Zoo

  • Paste pictures of the animals they saw in the zoo
  • Name them
  • Paste the pictures that you may have clicked with your child
  • Paste any leaves or flowers that they may have picked in the zoo

3. Once you and your child have planned the flow of the scrapbook, get them to colour, or paste stickers, pictures, etc as per your plan.
4. If you used loose sheets, compile them in the order of your plan and staple or glue them as per your preference.
5. Let it dry and let your child show off their handiwork! 🙂

Why Is Scrapbooking With Your Child Important?

Scrapbooking is a fun way to let your child express their creativity, thoughts, and emotions. It also allows them to document important and memorable experiences of their life.  As a parent, it serves as an opportunity to bond better with your child and revisit old memories.

Please note: The process of creating the scrapbook may be a little messy but it’s important to appreciate your child’s efforts and help them understand the concept.
