DLTK's Crafts for Kids
KID'S SCRAPBOOK

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

We all love our kids, don’t we?  Adore them, really.  I would do anything for my tender little tikes.  I’d die for them.  I’d kill for them.  But let’s be honest.  Sometimes, just sometimes, they are the ones I’d like to strangle.  My husband and I were discussing it and decided the odd thing is,  that it’s often the things we love the most that push us over the edge.  From that little realization came the idea for this craft.  We gave it as wedding gifts from the girls to two young couples that had no children (yet!).  It also makes a great mother or father’s day gift.

The general premise of this project is:

Your child’s name TOP 5 REASONS TO HAVE KIDS
and
Your child’s name TOP 5 REASONS NOT TO HAVE KIDS

Sort of the ying and the yang of parenting.

99% of my crafts are pretty much just for young kids.  But this one is fun for the young and old alike (I love making scrapbooks!!)

This project is by far the largest I've put on my site.  But don't be intimidated!  Rather than making an entire scrapbook, you can just pick your favorite pair and make a reversible picture.

THE TEMPLATES

I’ve put various thoughts on what you might put on the page, but there’s lots of opportunity here to use your imagination!  You can either read the thoughts and ideas below and click on the individual templates you want to print.  Or you can click here (Colour) or (Black & White) to go to small pictures of the various templates to get a feel for what they look like.  Not all of the templates have been completed yet, but you can put them together yourselves with a little imagination.

Stay tuned for more!
