Are you excited for this new school year? I am!
Have you considered creating a family homeschool yearbook committee?
Whether you or one of your children are a budding photographer or just a hobbyist, you can create a lovely homeschool yearbook. Most of us have a smartphone, a tablet, a Kindle Fire, or a camera, so let's put them to work for us. Even if you do not have the finances right now, to put them into the yearbook format, get those digital pictures. Then take a few minutes to label and save them in at least two places, while they await being chosen for the year book.
I suggest saving pictures on Google Photos (free if you have a free gmail account), on your PC, laptop, or external drive. If you have it on Google Photos and one other place, you are less likely to lose the photos if something happens to your phone or photo device!
At Costco, you can get a full color hardbound photo book of thirty pages for 19.99 and sometime during the year they actually do sales! These hardbound photo books are 11 1/4 x 8 3/4" format and .78 for each two additional pages. For under $22 you can make a thirty-eight page year book, basically, a page a week, with two to spare. So, you take the pictures, select the pictures, upload them and arrange them into a photobook online and then order.
20 Ideas for Creating a Homeschool Yearbook:
- First day or beggining of the school year school pictures
- Field trips.
- Reading aloud to the children.
- Nature walks.
- Children studying.
- The family working together.
- Children practicing an instrument.
- Family recital.
- Family service.
- The first snow.
- Children playing, building or creating.
- The family garden.
- Making Christmas.
- Scout advancements.
- Children in a play.
- Children in a sport.
- Family traditions.
- Family holidays.
- Family meal.
- Family service projects.
You have the idea! Include things you do as a family, to educate your children academically, and otherwise. Don't stage the pictures. Create memorable times together and catch candid pictures.
Each week take time on Sunday to review the pictures and select what you would like for that week's page.
So, create a family yearbook committee and get started today!!!
