THINGS TO DO WITH THE KIDS AT HALF TERM – SCRAPBOOKING

Scrapbooking is a great way to recreate and remember memories that isn’t exclusively owned by ‘Pinterest worthy’ crafters. To inspire your kids to sit down at a table after a day of fun (and potentially chaos) and use their creativity, why not try scrapbooking with them?

 

 

All the tools you need to get started with scrapbooking you can probably find around the house. Just pick up a scrapbook, we love our Kraft range because you can also decorate the front! Then gather together some colouring pencils and pens, a variety of papers, some scissors, glue and washi tape and chuck it all down on the table.

 

If you want some extra special stickers and scrapbooking accessories, we have loads in stores and online.

If you’re planning some fun-filled activity days for half term, collect some things on your day out and you can use them in the scrapbook to add texture and interest! If you have a Polaroid or instant printing camera you can use the photos from your day of fun as well. Using envelopes as scrapbook pockets is a really easy way to keep / hide things. Upgrading your normal sticky tape to washi tape is the best way to keep the scrapbook decorative when sticking things down!

Something you could do at the start of half term could be a ‘bucket list’ of things your child wants to do that week. If they write each thing in a piece of paper, a post-it note or a tag they can put their ideas in the envelope and pull one out a day.
