Their first drawing, their first painting, their first tracing-so hard to throw them all away. I keep scrap books stuffed with these items and in one book I cut the pictures out and use them like a picture alphabet book so they can be looked at for learning and not just stuffed behind the sofa.
This got me wondering if there are any other ideas for keeping our memories alive.
Take a photo of your child’s artwork and collect the photographs on Pinterest for them to see when they’re older. No need to keep heaps of paper
An app that lets you capture works of art, special times and messages all in one place by their age. Bring the memories to life
MAKE A MEMORY BOX
Nothing better than looking through objects that have an important meaning no matter how small. I have shells, jewellery, cards, photos and baby clothes in a special box. Even my little girls umbilical chord is in a bag (Not my idea-it’s gross)
Here are my scrap books-I love them
You can buy some lovely items too-silver fingerprint jewellery. First tooth silver boxes and photo albums.
I think it will be lovely for my daughter to see how she grew, what she did and where she went. These are the times that will help her develop and learn.
These are the memories I have too of being a mum.
Have a lovely weekend.
