Dad Gift Album

A special thanks to StorkNet member Karen Hamilton (LogansMom) who has shared this adorable scrapbook that she and her son Logan made for Dad.

Supplies Needed:

Directions:

  1. Pick out different photos that you are going to use. Have your child help you with the choosing.

  2. Once you select your photos chose a couple of different cardstock colors to go through the album. Red seemed to be a pre-dominant color in most of the photos for the example album, so it worked well.

  3. Crop each photo to fit the space you need and mount on cardstock.

  4. Position the mat/photo on the page. Each of the pages has the photo on the right side and on the left side either embellished or journal about the photo with your thoughts/feelings.

Notes:

  • Give your child a great big assortment of photos from the beginning of his life rather than give him recent photos of him and Daddy. I wanted to see what my three year old son's favorites were and his thinking behind that (of course, that got pretty funny to hear!)

  • After photos were picked, this project took a little over an hour.

  • At the end of the book include a pocket page that you can personalize with a conversation that your child has about his Daddy.
