Are you familiar with Pinterest ? It is an online scrap booking application and is so much fun! I used to spend hours thumbing through magazines looking for interesting articles but only really taking time to view the gorgeous images and dream about what might be. Pinterst is like that only better because you can find other friends or interesting people and follow their ideas too.
It is through Pinterest that I have found some great ideas for Memory Makers and my grandchildren this Christmas. Here are some of my favorites:
The things children wish for, especially when very young are often very touching or funny. This is a great way to capture those thoughts and make them a fun family tradition for years to come. Plus, they are simply cute!
Who can resist the hand prints or foot prints of little children and how much fun they have spreading their messy joy all over the place! These are great ideas and if you can get your little ones to ‘work within the lines’ then you are better than me! But oh did we have fun trying. (After Christmas I will show you my results but, for now it is best to look at the desired outcome!)
These are also great ideas for teachers and classes to take home to mommy as Christmas present…says me who cannot manage one little person!
The Sock Monkey has had its day – Its time for the Sock Reindeer! If you can sew, you can make this cute little guy and the kids will love it! Send me pictures if you complete it because I can’t sew and would love to see the results!
Do you have any special memory makers that you have made with your Grandchildren or that you want to make with your grandchildren? If so, please share them and add comments below!
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Pinning everyone! Let me know if you need an invite!
