Friday Activity: Mom and Me Memories

Each Friday we'll bring you a fun activity to do with your kids! 

This week's activity is...

Mom and Me Memories

pictures of mom & child (as many as there are letters in your childs name)
lots of colorful cardstock paper
colorful pens/pencils
two pieces of cardboard (5x7 or 8x10)

Create a mini photo album of memories by using the letters of your childs name. For a 5x7 album, lay two cardboard pieces side by side and cover them with paper to create a "folder. Use your card stock paper and fold pieces in half, glue photos on each side of the inside folded part. Glue the outside of the folded part to another paper to create a fanned booklet. Glue the front and back to the covered cardboard folder to make your book. Use pens and crayons to record the memories on the pages the pictures are glued to. Start with the first letter of the child's name and let each page be a letter of the name and a memory beginning with that letter. Let child think of a memory that begins with the first letter of their name (ex. A - always laughing)and use a picture of mom & kid with all smiles.
