Don't let the end of the photo shoot be the end of the entertainment; taking pictures is only half of it! There's a story to be told....
As an added bonus, scrapbooking is a non-intimidating chance to get those kids to write! Encourage them to write a few simple sentences to tell:
- what is happening...
- who is in the photo (or behind the scenes!)
- when and where the photos were taken
- why they chose to snap a particular shot
You can also add details that the album's viewer would find interesting. Remind them that their children and grandchildren may be enjoying their album someday!Here is a sample page from my nephew's scrapbook. His mom took the pictures, but he helped put the story together.
What stories will your kids tell?
