Scrapbooking is a perfect opportunity to engage in one of our favourite family activities, storytelling.
Step #1 in planning for this afternoon’s activity was having our granddaughters prepare their vacations journals, visit this post by clicking here.
Step #2 was making time each day of the vacation for the girls to write or paste something from that day’s activity to remind them of the day. Emily took to pasting the small packages shampoo and soap in her journal.
Step #3 was to spend a rainy afternoon following the vacation to review the pictures and have the children pick the pictures they would like to include in their journals.
And that brings us to today
Step #4 is a clean table, scrapbooking supplies, the printed photographs, the children favourite music playing softly in the background, and storytelling was we talk about the memories the picture evoke.
Our oldest grandson is 20 and he still has the vacation journals that he made when vacationing with Grandpa and Grandma.
