Hands-on Storytime Fun!

This post isn’t directly linked to one picture book, but it focuses on a craft idea for preserving your child’s school-year memories.  I had a conversation with a parent in a program this past week about how difficult it is to keep all the things that her child makes, and I told her about this grocery bag book that I made for my son, that was featured on Scrapbook Memories TV several years ago.  You can find the project instructions on the show’s website here.

Be sure to watch the next video post below for a school-year pencil box craft project!

I love this version of Eric Carle’s My Very First Book of Numbers!  When I taught preschool, I used it all the time in my classroom, so I decided to make my own version of  split-paged book for my students to use.

You can find the instructions for my split-paged scrapbook in my book, The Ultimate Guide to Scrapbooking with Children, which is available for purchase at CARDZ TV STAMPS!
