It's Cindy and I am back again with my second part on using Smash Books. Today's post is using Smash Books with children. Now, my kids are 5 & 6 so they are mostly at the glue and stick stage. They can't quite use my Cricut and they haven't really caught on yet to scrapbooking or keeping memorabilia from a trip or journaling. So in this project they have to really be guided. Older children could do more - they could keep a journal on their trip, they could use a Smash book to scrapbook their summer vacation and so much more.
For this project, I cut out many elements on my Cricut before we even left for our trip. I went through each of their scrapbooks and any paper that I thought would be too difficult or "ugly" to work with I covered with paper from my stash. When we got back from our trip, I cut out any additional elements and printed out my pictures. I had the kids use the Smash glue sticks for this project.
