Skip an expensive year book and make a school memory book for autographs!
When I was growing up year books were for high school. Getting to high school and being able to purchase a year book was a big deal. I was a little surprised when my kids started school that now even elementary schools are offering year books – and they aren’t cheap!
Easy DIY School Memory Book
Much to my children’s dismay, I was not about to spend $50 on a year book for Kindergarten and 2nd grade. After digging a little, I discovered that the real reason they wanted a year book was to to get their friends’ autographs. I tried to pass off a little notebook as an autograph memory book but they weren’t going for it. So instead, we created a cute autograph book cover!
To make the autograph book, simply print out the covers. Both covers are on 1 sheet so you can choose one or make two. I used card stock to make the cover sturdier. The cover is half of a standard piece of white copy paper. To make the autograph book just cut paper in half and staple the cover on. I cut another sheet of card stock in half to make the back. Done! Now your kids have an autograph book to capture their friends signatures – and phone numbers for summer play dates.
