Passport to Summer Challenge Day 3: Preserving Summer Memories!

The summer is filled with so many fun adventures whether it is as elaborate as a family vacation or as simple as a trip for ice cream. Today's challenge is for you and your kids to craft your summer memories!

This craft is so easy and will be something that your family will enjoy for years to come. Over the course of the summers collect items from your adventures and add them to a summer scrapbook or a memory jar. Your memory jar can be a mason jar, a washed out spaghetti sauce jar, or whatever else you can re-purpose.

Here are some examples of what you can include:
Ticket stubs
Zoo maps 
Invitations to parties
Pictures
Wrappers
Trinkets from a carnival
Seashells


sunscrapbooking


Do you scrapbook? How do you preserve or display your favorite family memories?

I don't scrapbook. We take tons of pics, though! And now that my kids are writing, we're doing summer projects where they draw a pic of what they did that day and write a little story about it. At the end of the summer, we'll make little books out of the worksheets! :)

I don't scrapbook, but I am going to ideas from this post and we are going to make a picture frame attaching things (tickets, leaves from certain parks, etc) and title the picture frame 2013.

I don't scrapbook much though I do enjoy doing some of the online pages from time to time.

Mostly I preserve our memories through pictures. I'm a big picture taker! I work at a photography studio so I'm always taking my kids in and family in. I display our pictures and send them out to family through out the year.
