Keep Newspaper Fresh
Having your children cut out articles, ads or comics from the local paper and stick them in a scrapbook can be fun and educational. And they'll get a kick out of trying this method for keeping the clippings from getting brittle and yellowed.
Mix 1 capful of milk of magnesia into a quart of fresh club soda; let it sit overnight. Stir the solution well in the morning and pour it into a shallow pan. Insert the clipping; wait 2 hours, then carefully remove it and lay it flat on a towel. When it's dry, mount it in a scrapbook (with adhesive photo corners or other archival methods, not glue or tape).
