Kindergarten is a special year in a child's life. For years, I have struggled with how to collect and save children's work to share with families at the end of the year. I have tried several methods but none seemed to really work well. When I saw this, I knew I had found the answer.
Kindergarten Memory Boxes
I purchased the boxes from here. To create the top, I glued strips on construction paper onto the box to give it a pop of color. Then, I made a picture collage of my class and copied it onto legal size paper.
Inside the box, families found pieces of their child's work from throughout the school year.

I liked how easy this was to do and that the student work was not limited to a certain size. It did require some prep and planning but overall, it was a success. I liked it so much, that I am planning on creating a Memory Box for my son.
How do you collect memories and keepsakes for families?
