Giving Thanks Scrapbook

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, I want to share with you a fun tradition we started when we moved to the Pacific Northwest. When we moved away from family and friends, I wanted to capture our feelings of thanksgiving at thanksgiving!

To make a scrapbook for your family, start with these easy supplies:

  • Scrapbook*
  • Stickers, Scrapbook paper, adornments
  • Markers, colored pens or pencils, crayons
  • acid-free adhesives

I used a scrapbook I had purchased years ago, and it doesn’t have protective sleeves. Because at the time, I just wanted to start a tradition, I didn’t worry about having anything durable, just something accessible.

(*I really like this one from Amazon and will likely purchase it once my current scrapbook is full.)

What I like to do is see the progression of our family thankfulness year-by-year. I’ve used printouts, stickers, and fun markers to add to the variety and spark inspiration for my children.

This year, simplicity is key. With our busy schedule, I want to make sure that we capture some thoughts in word or pictures, on Thanksgiving Day. I turned to the new pages and used leftover paper scraps from a previous project and simply dated the pages with the year.

I love to use Sharpies in fine point size:

What are your family traditions at Thanksgiving? What new traditions are you planning on this year?
