memory journal

This project is intended for kids ages 6+.

Step 1

Take 3-4 of the paper bags and lay them on top of one another with the opening facing to the right. The bags should all be laying in the same direction.

Step 2

Fold the stack of bags in half and crease the fold, then open it back up flat.

Step 3

ADULT: Punch a hole on the spine/fold of the booklet near the top and one near the bottom. Thread the yarn through the holes a couple of times, then tie a knot to bind.

Step 4

Now, decorate your memory journal using stickers, markers and construction paper. Draw pictures or add photos and write about your memories.
TIP: Cut paper to fit into the openings of the bags and slip them in with special stories or secrets to keep.
