10 Minute Family Book



I debated if this was even worth posting since not much "craftiness" went into it--but I liked the idea when I saw my friend, Ruth's, book so I thought maybe it would interest someone else as well. We live far from all our family. The closest family is in Washington D.C. about a 7 hour drive on a typical day. We miss them all. We want Kate to know her family members so this seems like a great idea to make sure she stays familiar with their faces. It's also great for keeping her occupied for long periods of time when she needs to sit still (church, airplanes, etc.) She seems to look at it a lot longer than most of her books.


It's easy and cheap. You could get all fancy, scrapbooky with it, but I'm not too into scrapbooking anymore. Just glue pictures, add captions, laminate and hang on a ring. It's really cute to watch her as she studies everyone's face!

What a great idea Jill - also a great gift idea for a new mom - even if she lives by her family or not.... I can just see Kate studying those pictures! Love you all!

Wow! I feel so honored. It looks great! Ashley has learned who her "Nana" and "Pop-pop" are from looking at the book every Sunday. Hopefully that will help when they come in August to help us with her. =)

I love your little bunny! So cute. These little family books are adorable. My girls will sit and look at pictures forever too! I just need to print them more often! THanks for sharing
