Vacation Scrapbook

My kids love, love, LOVE to look at pictures from special events or family vacations. They are always asking to look at pictures on my phone or they are flipping through our family albums. I thought it would be so much fun for them to make their own scrapbooks to document our summer vacation memories!

I designed a scrapbook cover page and one for the back too, and then we hit Walmart to purchase one of those cheap $1 plastic photo albums. (This is not only a fun vacation scrapbook, it’s also affordable too!) Our scrapbook pages fit perfectly inside a 4×6 album, and it looks darling!

Our Mini Scrapbook Album from a Weekend Roadtrip

Our first summer road trip was a quick weekend to visit friends to Madison, WI. When we got home, I printed off some vacation photos and let my daughter start making her scrapbook. She LOVED being able to decorate her book and look at pictures from our trip!

Here are a few more ways you can document your summer memories: 

  1. Summer Camp Printable Journal
  2. Summer Journal Kit
  3. Journal for Kids
