The first project is a small album all their own. They pick out their personal favorites from your photographs and attach them with photo squares. Then, you write down a list of their favorite memories and insert it in the album. We love how Helen copied the memories her little ones dictated verbatim including grammatical errors. A memory like "I swimmed by myself" really captures the stage a child is at.
The second project is to let the child paint a few of her favorite memories. We really like how Helen showcases a photo from the trip next to a painting of the same thing here. It'd be fun to let the child paint the memory first and then compare it to a photograph. Finally, Helen framed a few of the paintings and put them in a prominent place.
Both of these are simple, low-cost, and heartfelt ways to take a little of your vacation home with you.
