This simple scrapbook will turn every student’s summer fun into a treasured keepsake!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 4th grade / 3 - 9 years

You will need:

Before you begin:

About a week before beginning this project, invite students to collect and bring in copies of photos and other memorabilia from summer activities. Explain to them that they will be making a folder of their summer memories to share and enjoy.

Directions

  1. Give each student a Scrapbook Title template and glue. Allow students to choose a pocket folder.
  2. Have students color and glue the Scrapbook Title template onto the front cover of their folders.
  3. Invite students to select summer photos and memorabilia from their collections and glue them onto the front, inside and back of the pocket folder in a collage display.
  4. If you are using construction paper, have students cut the edges into fun shapes with the craft scissors. Show them how to glue the paper behind the photos to make them stand out.
  5. Set out the collage materials and stickers. Invite students to decorate their folders by gluing or sticking these on.
  6. Have students add brochures or maps to their folders by tucking them inside the pockets.
  7. Encourage students to write captions beneath the photos to explain the picture and where it was taken. (Younger students can dictate these for you to write.)
  8. Put the completed summer folders on display in a classroom center. Invite students to browse through them during free time!
