Activity: Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a great way to use your creativity, spend time crafting, and preserve memories.

Your scrapbook can be as simple as photos glued to a page, or you can embellish it with stamps, stickers, and other decorations!

We have some scrapbooking tips for beginners below.


You can create your own scrapbook by binding sheets of paper or buy a ready-made scrapbook.

Extra materials for embellishing your scrapbook can easily be found at craft stores or at the dollar store.

You can pick up stickers, stamps, ribbons, colorful markers, and even special scissors that can cut shapes into the edge of your pictures!


Personalize your scrapbook with photographs and mementos.

You can print photos from your cell phone or get an instant camera to collect snapshots of the fun places you go and people you spend time with.

Save items like ticket stubs, or draw maps and pictures to add more of a personal touch to your scrapbook.


There is no one format or design you should follow when creating a scrapbook. As noted above, it’s entirely up to you how much decoration you want to use.

You don’t even need a plan for your scrapbook — your pages don’t have to match or follow a certain theme unless you prefer it!

Don’t get too hung up on making your scrapbook perfect. The important thing is that you enjoy looking at it and that it collects your fondest memories for you to look back on.
