We are simply using an inexpensive photo album that holds three 4×6 photos on each page. We have been having a great time looking through old photos that were never scrapbooked, as well as hunting through our most recent photos, to find pictures to match the letters. I print out the name of the object or person on my label maker.
We are now getting to some of the trickier letters, like Q and V and X, and it is so fun to listen to the girls brainstorm about things we could photograph for those letters. They love looking through this “alphabet scrapbook” just as much as their baby books.
I made similar books about colors & numbers using smaller photo albums for the girls when they were toddlers. My 5-year-old also has one she calls her “Word Book,” with photos of things and people she likes, along with the word. She has taken most of those photos herself.
Even though my girls know their colors and numbers, and even most of their letters & sounds, these are still some of their favorite books to look at. It’s fun to be the star of your own book!
