Get Organized To Save The School Memories
Create a memory box to organize your child's school work and art projects and to save as your child grows. With a memory box you’ll be able to reminisce and cherish school memories from the past while seeing the progress made through your child’s early years.
What is a school memory box?
Tip: A memory box can be useful for future projects, such as scrapbooking, because it makes finding past pictures and special memories easier.
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.
What should you keep in a memory box?
No matter what age or grade your child is currently in, he or she will bring home a massive amount of papers and memories throughout the school year. Here are some ideas of things to keep in your child’s memory box for safe-keeping and future use.
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.
How to make a school memory box
A memory box can be as simple as buying stackable boxes from the store and writing your child’s name and grade on the side in permanent ink, but you can make it into a craft project and encourage your child to express his or her personality with the decorations placed on the memory box.
