Summer Vacation Photo Journal Albums



Summer vacation has begun...
let the good times roll....
except during naptime/quiet time....
then let's just be quiet instead. 

My three non-nappers made these during our semi-quiet time:
 Summer Vacation Photo Journal Albums.

I grabbed these albums at the Dollar Tree (yep..they cost me a whole dollar - each). 

We took out the cardstock they came with & added 4x6 journal cards
(secret agenda:  some writing practice so their brains don't turn to mush this summer!)

After each adventure, my kids will add drawings and photographs to their albums.
Easy, peazy...





My two school-aged boys listed the adventures they hoped to take
(my preschooler drew pics):




...and decorated them with stickers/drawings:




And we're off - to our next adventure!

to me those have always been the
two most beautiful words in the English language." 
(Henry James)
