I came back from my vacation this Sunday... I was in Bodrum for one month and enjoyed lots of sun and the Aegean sea...
I was thinking about how could we keep little things that my daughters collected during this trip in more organized and attractive way instead of putting them in a box and putting it a way to a storage room.
I found some ideas on http://www.marthastewart.com/ and wanted to share them with you.
Filled with souvenirs collected on trips and pictures developed afterward, vacation memory jars are like little worlds that can be visited again and again. Kids can add to them or rearrange them anytime they like. Bent wire can be used to lower and position objects in a thin-necked jar.
Here's a simple way for kids to store their collections: Accordion-fold a strip of paper, and glue the first and last pages to the inside of a box's lid and bottom. Keep some pages empty so the collection can grow.
Some special photos taken during the trip?
Kids will love conceiving an ocean diorama that uses shells, toy birds, maps, and sand.
