If you read our blog regularly you will know we recently went on a family holiday camping near Scarborough. Both children kept things from the holiday to make scrapbooks to record what they did. We finished them off this week after finally getting the photographs printed! I bought a cheap pack of exercise books and used two of these.
We collected postcards, receipts, paper bags, leaflets, mini golf scorecards and took plenty of photos to stick in. Both children took their books into nursery to show their friends and to talk about their holiday.
I wrote captions for some of the photos to add extra meaning. I asked Boy to describe somethings and then recorded his own words.
This is a lovely thing to keep and look back on in years to come. It was something to focus on whilst we were away, remembering to take pictures and collect things and stick them in. It also provided a great opportunity for the children to talk to their friends and teachers about their home life. Developing skills in literacy and speaking and listening too.
