Due to mamafiza’s still not fully recovered from her sickness, I’ll help to post her “draft post“. Thank you.
Hi there 😉
Wish you were in the pink of health.
Today, I love to share my valuable experience on creating “Photo Journal” with my kiddies.
We love to travel, take pictures and play all day long.
Since my kiddies are so young, we are learning more through living than through “courses and classes” at this point, but not entirely.
If you love journaling and photography, why not combine the two into photo journaling.
You can take photos that chronicle your homeschool days, trips or special events. Document a history that you can keep forever.
You may follow these tips on “How to Keep a Photo Journal with Your Toddler“:
Things You’ll Need:
- Internet access
- Photo journaling program
Step by step Guide:
- Step 1: Get organized.
Plan how you want your journal to look. You can choose from an online journal, a computerized photo journal or a printed journal.
Decide how often you want to place entry into your photo journal.
- Step 2: Pick a topic.
You can journal by date or by event. Add a photo each day to create a regular journal or diary.
The photos depict your day. Journal by topic if you want a journal that shows a special event.
Please discuss with your toddlers regarding to their interest.
- Step 3: Have a goal.
You may want to keep a history but some journalists write and photograph events to share their feelings.
- Step 4: Journal by date by taking a photo each day to represent what you have done that day.
- Step 5: Add captions to your photo that describe your day or explain any special parts of your photo. Make sure you add the date to each photo.
- Step 6: Treat your photo journal like a scrapbook and decorate the pages with captions, borders and fancy lettering.
Lil toddler just love to help you!
Scrapbooking is a lot like photo journaling. You capture memories to look at later on.
- Step 7: Use a digital camera and download photos to your computer.
Print the photos for your photo journal and keep copies on the computer.
Save your photos on your computer hard drive and back them up on a disc.
- Step 8: Add your photos to a computer photo journaling program or upload them to the Internet.
You can display your photos online so others can view your journal or you can create a slide show for your own use or to share with others.
Best of luck mommies 😉
