Building a printed photo book or a set of retro prints really gives you child a sense of accomplishment when they hold a printed ideas in their hands that they can show to family and friends, “look what I made !”

Here are some of our top ideas on how to spend an afternoon:

Write A Story Together

Create a short story about your child’s dreams, interests or re-tell a recent holiday. You can create artwork to go along with the story which you can draw together or use photos. You could also create a family message book where you tell the history of family members and how they relate to your child.

Tip: Scan the artwork with Google’s Photo Scan

Tip: If you are going to write long paragraphs rather do them in a word editing software and then take a screen shot of the paragraph and bring it into your photo book project as an image file.
