Create a memory box for the upcoming school year
A school memory box is a safe place to keep your child’s artwork, accomplishments and memories throughout each school year. There are many ways to make a memory box — from an easy organized space to a more involved DIY project, which is perfect for older kids and parents to make together.
This easy family tradition can be done yearly and becomes an organizational tool for you and your child to keep prized possessions from his childhood. Possessions you can both reflect back on as the year passes and as your child gets older.
Tip:If a school project is too large for the memory box, take a picture of the project, write the name of the project and the date on the back of the photo (with a photo-safe pen) and place the picture inside your child’s memory box. This can also be done with photographs from school events, recitals and plays. Read more at How to make a school memory box
