Scrapbooking can be a lot of fun for children and a really wonderful way for them to relive and preserve the memories -- and memorabilia -- of their special experiences and trips. Here are some tips for techniques children can easily do by themselves or with a little help from you.
1. First of all, work with a manageable book, like an accordion album.
2. You can make titles for pages by punching photographs of letters or using chipboard letters.
3. Take a photo of the same scene during the day and night and place them next to each other for a fun visual effect.
4. Glue an envelope to the scrapbook to hold tickets or other memorabilia.
5. Photocopy and shrink brochures from trips to paste into the scrapbook.
6. Use bubble quote stickers to add commentary to your scrapbooks.
7. Use library pocket cards to tuck in tickets and photos.
