6 Tips For Back to School Scrapbooking Ideas

School scrapbooking albums usually include pictures of a child's first day of school for each grade level, but there's so much more to our back-to-school memories. Why not create a few page layouts that document the feelings and memories of the back-to-school season? Get your camera and your scrapbooking supplies ready, and try these school scrapbooking ideas.

Back-to-School Clothes Shopping

This is a new school year ritual. We all take our children shopping for new clothes to start the school season. This year, take your camera along for the trip, and not only will you capture some fun pictures of your children shopping, but you'll record the current fashions trends of that year. Be sure to include the good, the bad and the ugly of this yearís fashions. Even if you have a less than enthusiastic shopper, itís a back-to-school tradition that should be part of any school scrapbook.

School Registration

Standing in line to get your childís class schedule and new textbooks is another common back to school event. If your child is young or this is a new school for him, take some pictures of his first impressions of the new school year. Older children may not welcome photos during school registration, but you can still scrapbook their class assignment schedule after they no longer need it, or a picture of the stack of textbooks may make a nice addition to a school page layout. Registration is also a great time to snap a photo of the school building for a school scrapbooking album.

Hopes for the Coming School Year

Have your children write down what they hope to learn in the coming school year. Ask them how they see themselves at the end of the year, and what they are most looking forward to at this grade level. Maybe they are looking forward to learning how to read or long division or maybe just making new friends. You can scrapbook these thoughts in a page layout. It's even more personal if you use each childís own handwriting.

First Day of School

So much is going on during the morning of the first day of school. When you take a photograph of your children in their new clothes with new backpacks, pick the same place each year to take the photo. You will get a better perspective of how they have changed in height if you pick the same location with the same background.

Leaving on the School Bus

If your children take a bus to school, a fun moment to capture is leaving on the school bus on the first day of school. Take one photo of your children entering the bus, and then try to take one of them waving from the windows.

Reuniting with Friends

Part of the fun of the back-to-school season is reuniting with old school friends. Photograph these moments at the school bus stop or in front of the school if you accompany your child to school. Remember to be sensitive to older children who many not want photos taken during this time.

The back-to-school season is full of traditions and rituals. Youíll definitely want to document them in a school scrapbook album. Whether you choose to create one scrapbook that includes all of your children or an album for each child, these tips will give you lots of ideas to fill up those pages.
