One of the most beloved parts of a public school experience is the yearbook. Yearbooks are a great way to look back at the year, and then keep those memories in a convenient place forever. Just because a child isn't in public school, doesn't mean they can't have a yearbook!
Creating a DIY yearbook is a great way for homeschooling parents to document their children's year of learning. To help you get started here are some of my favorite things to include:
1. Artwork and Craft projects that were created throughout the year. This is a great way to watch their skills and creativity grow.
2. Depending on the age and skill level be sure to include essays, poems or any other writing that your child has done.
3. Lots of photos! Document your learning that year with pictures of daily events as well as special activities. Extracurricular activities such as sports or music lessons should be included as well.
4. Keepsakes or mementos from field trips or other learning activities. This could include anything from maps, stickers or even dried flowers. Let your child help choose things they want to remember.
Parents who are part of a homeschool group should collaborate together to take photographs during activities and share them amongst each other. Not only will there be more photos, but photos that include their homeschooling friends. And don't forget to let them sign each other's yearbooks at the end of the year! You can add in extra pages
As students get older, this is a project that can be handed over to them at the beginning of the year. Letting them create their own yearbook will give them the chance to save things that are important to them and work that they are proud of. Here at Country Craft Creations we are proud to offer everything you need to create your very own yearbook. Let your older children browse our wide selection of craft supplies to help them make it their own!
