Long distance grandparents

 

It may not always be practical to visit family daily or weekly.  But it is important to create lasting impressions with grandchildren when they are young.  One approach could be to design an alphabet book that chronicles family stories.

 

Instead of buying an alphabet book off the shelf, use a photobook, scrapbook or photo album to design your own.  It is easier than you think and we are here to help.  Contact us today or read on…

Step 1.  Sort the photos according to letter (a photo of the family picking apples might be categorized under “A” for “apples” or “P” for “picking apples,” depending on her needs)

Step 2.  Photocopy or scan the original photos to preserve old archived photos

Srep 3.  For scans, consider making a photobook.  We are here to support.

Step 4.  For hard copy photos, cut and paste or place photos into a scrapbook or album, with two pages for each letter of the alphabet.

Step 5.  Use funny phrases or family annecdotes to describe the photos and label each one.

Remember that this book will also be a record of memorable family events like first Christmas, vacasports etc.  The key is to organize the book so that it tells a story about the family.
