Documenting Your Child’s School Year

Back to School season may be over and done with but the school year is just getting started. Now is the perfect time to start a personal yearbook for your child to document their accomplishments throughout the year so they can look back and reflect on all their achievements. These books are perfect for sharing with long distance family members or make a neat show and tell item.

Art projects
Some of the most visually captivating and colorful images are of arts and crafts projects. We suggest taking digital photographs of your child’s artwork or, if possible, scanning the image and uploading the picture. There is so much you can do with this section! Make stickers and backgrounds out of their creation or use parts of it as a page trim or border to create a custom theme through your photo book.

Academic progress
When I was growing up, nothing made me prouder than to show off good report card grades and high scores on my homework or tests. Add a brag book section for your child to show off all their accomplishments; they will feel good about themselves knowing that all their hard work is being acknowledged.

Field Trips and School Events
Do you love volunteering to chaperone school trips and functions? It’s also a great time to sneak in a few photos of your child in their natural environment with their friends and classmates. If you do not have time to attend, you could always ask the chaperoning parent(s) to help document all the fun times and special moments for you.

Extracurricular Activities
Is your child an athlete? Starring in the latest high school play? Or maybe he or she spends her time championing causes with bake sales. Document all the activities in which your child takes part that sets them apart from everyone else and their school year experience.

I hope this gives you some great ideas for your child’s yearbook! Now go grab your camera and start capturing all the school year moments you and your family would want to look back and reflect on.

Happy Mixbooking!
