Make a memory book

Help your child learn about reading, drawing, and choosing things they like.

This memory book is a fun indoor activity to do together and something special to keep.

First, you’ll need:

  • A scrapbook
  • Pens, pencils or crayons
  • Photographs, magazines and catalogues
  • Child-safe scissors
  • Glue

Step 1: Help your child decorate the cover of the scrapbook and write their name on it.

Step 2: Help them choose their favourite things: books, toys, pets, people, TV shows. Help them draw them in the books.

Step 3: Pick out family photos and things they like from any magazines you have around the house. Stick them in together.

Step 4: Keep collecting things, like tickets, photos and drawings to add to the book.

Good to know

Children love to read about things they have done or about people important to them. Making a memory book is a way to build their self-esteem and confidence.
