Is a scrapbook to much to give to a seven year old?

My daughter loves to do crafts so I thought for her seventh b-day I will get her a scrapbook and stuff to put with it. I've heard from a lot of people that it is a bit too much for her and she wont enjoy it as much as I think she will. I've heard her ask me for a photo book plenty of times. So I just put two and two together photo book and she likes crafts. I think she will enjoy it even if I have to be right there with her. It will give us some bonding time and she will enjoy it when its done.

  • I think this is just like movies, books, photography, hiking, any other hobby - it depends on the individual. Some people like them, others don't. Some people have the patience, others don't. If you think she'll enjoy it, then do it. If it turns out you're wrong, no biggie, you know better for next time.

  • I bought a scrapbook kit for my six-year-old niece at Chrismas, and her mom said she loved it. In the package, there were rounded scissors, glue, glitter, stickers for the scrapbook pages, the book, and then you could add your own photos. I think it was only about $12 at Wal-Mart.
