School Year Placemats
This post comes from my good friend, Jackie. Jackie is the momma of 3 super sweet kids ages 11, 9 and 4. Thanks, Jackie, for sharing your idea with us!
One way to keep up with scrapbooking with three kids is to keep it simple! The summer after each school year we print out our favorite pictures from the school year & make a year in review picture placemat, including all kinds of pictures, with their school picture front & center.
- poster board
- pictures from the past school year
- glue stick
To make these placemats, start out by simply cutting a poster board into a12 by 18 rectangle.
Next, cut & paste pictures. Add stickers and be sure to write the grade and year on it!
Finally, take the placemats to Office Max or Staples and have them laminate it, and there you go, a priceless placemat of precious memories!
Depending on the age of your children, they can help with part of it or do it all by themselves. It’s such a fun way to remember what they looked like at each age, what activities they did, who their friends were, what they were for Halloween, what kind of cake they had on their birthday, etc. I think this is something they will appreciate when they’re older and for now it’s a great way to decorate the dinner table!
