Preschool Scrapbooks! Paper Doll Dress Ups & Bind it All

Good morning!

Can you believe it is Friday already?  Time is flying so fast for me this year.  You'd think that I would be bored having all of my kids in school for at least half the day but it seems like I am more busy now than ever!  My laundry has had a major overhaul and I am still keeping it under control.  Wish me luck to keep this up!  I feel like I work at the post office with all of this laundry, it just keeps coming and coming!!

Today I had the opportunity to volunteer at a local preschool in my city.  The director asked if I would come and scrapbook with the children for a last day of Summer party.  I decided that something like this with 9 children 4 and under should be a simple project.  I made all of the books ahead of time so all they did was add their picture to each page and 1 die cut.  I was sweating by the time we were finished!  Here are the books and a pic of me with the kids.




Have a great day Everyone!!!  Big hugs to you all!

  3. What a sweet project for sweet kiddo's -- I know what you mean about trying to do the work ahead of time and all they have to do is "this" -- but its like they are all trying to do the same thing at the same time and it's overwhelming. LOL --
    You're so awesome to do the things you do. Thank you for sharing with us.
    Have a super day!

  10. You do so many wonderful things for people. My sister Mary Bellamy told me some wonderful things that you do in your ward. I know you have your hands full with your family and I am so thankful that you take the time to do things for us here on your blog. Thanks again for all you do.

  12. Thanks for sharing. I think I am going to do something similar for my 21 nieces & nephews…most of them are under 15 years old. It will keep them busy during the next family gathering.

    Robyn, my parents have 9 children. Imagine the laundry we had! My Mom washed clothes two days a week – Mon & Thurs. We were responsible to get our clothes downstairs before going to school. It was a great lesson and most of my siblings continue this today practice with their kids.

    Have a great day!!!
