DIY End of Year Autograph Scrapbook

The end of the school year is fast-approaching. For a lot of kids (and moms) the end of the year is bittersweet. Your schedules are thrown out of what which can be frustrating. Kids miss playing with friends that they only see at school. On the flip side, you have more time to spend together and strengthen your family. If your kids love school as much as mine, though, they will miss it and all of their teachers over the summer too. Unfortunately you can’t change the school year but you can give your child a keepsake to look back on over the summer break. Let him collect memories of the school year with a DIY end of year autograph scrapbook.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
