Memory Box


Help your child make a memory box where she can store her special mementos and childhood treasures.

Materials

  • Cardboard box with lid
  • Magazines, photos, paint, markers, and/or stickers
  • Clear contact paper (optional)

Directions

  1. Have your child decorate a cardboard box and its lid.
  2. She might want to glue magazine pictures or photos of herself onto the outside of the box, paint pictures on the box, or simply decorate it with markers and/or stickers.
  3. If you like, cover the box with clear contact paper.
  4. Encourage your child to store photos, report cards, award certificates, and other mementos in her memory box.
  5. Looking through her box will be a great activity for your child when she's sick, on rainy days, or when there's just "nothing to do."
