Use this as a templet to create a year in review for your child’s scrapbook.  Help your child fill the form in and allow them to color the design in at the same time. This page in a scrapbook will also introduce another new year.

Halloween Trick-Or Treat Smell My Feet – Footprint Keepsake

945187_10151838883195266_1533246410_nWhat a great piece of memory you can make – and its very simple to do. Would work great as a little gift to Grandparents. Take white acrylic paint and spread over area larger than one of your child’s feet with a paintbrush on a paper plate. Dip child’s foot into the paint and then brush excess off while making sure every area of the foot is covered. Tickle top of toe area to help make toes spread. Place child’s foot in a hovering position to ensure it will go down where you want it to. Gently press down on foot and ensure pressure is given from heal to toes and lift directly up. When dry add dots for mouth and eyes to make the ghosts and paint the wording. Seal with polyurethane. Make sure to wash both feet well – would be best to do this before bath time.

Happy New Year Memory Jar

mason_jar_memory_jar_with_monogramThis is a fantastic idea. Make a memory jar for the new year. As the days go on write little notes of things you are thankful for. Read these next year and treasure moments that you may have forgotten about. Jar can be made from a mason jar or any recycled jar from the kitchen.
