A kids birthday party is one of the most memorable experiences any child could ever have. Since this is a special moment, the memories during this celebration should be preserved because these will remind the child of the good experiences he or she had during the younger years. In order to preserve good memories and experiences, more and more parents encourage their children to create their own scrapbooks at such an early age so they can keep their childhood memories intact.
Indeed, birthdays are one of the most fun events that people can make a scrapbook of. Experts say that scrap booking is one of the most effective and enjoyable ways of keeping birthday celebration memories safe and fun to look at. By collecting and keeping bits and pieces of memories during the birthday celebration, a child can create and tell a story. Aside from these, children can also use scrap booking as a learning experience because this can teach them the value of resourcefulness, creativity, patience, and perseverance.
A great way to keep memories
For parents, scrap booking is one of the most enjoyable activities they can share with their kids especially after the birthday celebration where every moment is fresh in the child’s mind. Aside from being a bonding time with kids, scrap booking can also be a post-birthday activity for the child with his or her friends since they are the very characters present during the celebration.
Although, scrap booking is a nice activity, parents must make sure that they teach their kids the basic of arts and crafts so no materials will be wasted. Parents should also:
see the inclination of their children. It is important to consider the interest of the child in the craft. If your child is one of those who are into arts and into collecting mementos to create another work of art. Then she or he is the perfect candidate for the activity because she/he already has the drive and the creativity to create another masterpiece. But if your child is not yet interested with crafts and arts, it doesn’t mean he/she cannot indulge into scrapbooking. In fact, this is the perfect time to introduce him/her into a new world of exciting and enjoyable activity.
consider the availability of space. Since scrap booking can be a messy activity, it is a must to have a space large enough for kids to do the activity. Since scrapbooking requires a lot of materials, you will need a space big enough for them to sprawl and to scatter the materials they will use for making the scrapbook. It is advisable that you provide a space where kids can do their scrapbook and a place where they can leave their stuff.
know the amount of materials your child will need. Since you are about to teach the basics of scrap booking for a kids birthday party, you will need the materials which you can find in the four walls of your house.
Here’s a quick list of the materials and supplies your kid needs: paper or scrapbook paper, pens and colored pencils, photos, scrapbooking die-cuts and cut-outs, scrapbooking tools such as punchers, scissors, rulers, stamps, adhesives and removers, stickers of different designs, templates, embellishments such as eyelets, brads, nails and tacks, colored and specialty papers, and scrapbook apparels such as scrapbook kits for starters.
