Children make beautiful photographic models and adorable subjects for scrapbook layouts. The only problem is that they grow and change almost instantly. But, you can record those special memories in your scrapbook.
Here are 14 ideas to showcasing some of the cute things kids do, and some of the memories you might preserve.
Record the Momentous Event
Kids are always having momentous events. Whether they are losing teeth, taking their first step, heading off to high school. Scrapbooking is a perfect way to record these events.
We love how Tami used the space at the bottom of the layout to write about the occasion.
Showcase Fun Activities
When your kids are involved in a fun activity, like hunting for bugs, take the time to photograph it and create a layout about it.
And, when you come across a really cute die, like this 2x2 Butterfly, you might even schedule an outing just so you can use it on a page like this.
Picture the Relationships
Whether it's a special relationship with a pet or Grandma, be sure to take a few snapshots to record the memories.
Here, Candy's neighbor always comes to pet her dog in the garden, so she included a few photos of the flowers, as well.
Publish the Likes
Kids change their likes and dislikes almost as often as they change their socks. Recording those likes in your scrapbook will be a cherished memory as they grow older.
We love how Tami used Cole's own handwriting to record these likes. What a treasure!

Take a Closer Look
Include Close Ups
This little boy is adorable and his chalk drawings are fabulous. But what really sets this layout apart is that adorable photo at the top of his toes sticking out of too long jeans.
Sometimes there is something precious about a certain part of the person that has little to do with the overall theme of your layout. Be sure to include it, as well.
