Show friends and family that life is "picture perfect"! Capturing your child's day-to-day activities, special events, and favorite things in pictures is great way to record the things that happen in life.

Your child will need a camera for this activity.

What You'll Need:

  • Camera
  • Poster board
  • Glue
  • Markers
  • Pen
  • Index cards (optional)
  • Photo album (optional)

How to Create an Album that's Picture Perfect:

Step 1: Encourage your child to tell the story of his or her life by using photographs. Are they messy? Take a picture of their room. Do they love animals? Take a picture of a favorite cat. Make every picture count.

Step 2: After the pictures are developed, mount them on poster board with glue.

Step 2: Write a few words under each picture describing the photo and why it was taken. Or write your captions on index cards and arrange the cards and photos in a photo album.
