Life is so busy with each week whizzing by in a flash. Well that’s how it feels for me let alone the small people in my life. Its not often that we sit down with them and take stock of the year. Now seems like the perfect time as the year comes a frenzied end with whirlwind of celebrations to let it all sink in.
I started this process with Pook by going through a selection of photos on the computer. I had up until this point not used the computer for a specific purpose with her other than watching Youtube. Needless to say she loved it. I had pre selected them from the year making sure I highlighted the main events. It was a real opportunity to sit down and have a good chat about all the many things we had seen and done the past 12 months. After spending some time looking at the photos I then gave her a selection of them printed out along with some card, scissors and glue. The invitation was for her to cut out her favourite images and add to the card to make one big picture for the year. She did however need a little help cutting out the pictures. Pook really enjoyed choosing the photos with great care and attention.
This is definitely going to be a new family tradition. I am planing to keep them all and give them to her on her 18th birthday as a keep sake of her view of her childhood.
Thank you Gemma and Pook for this lovely idea!
I will surely be making one of these with my kids too!
