High School Scrapbooking Ideas

Collect and preserve your child's school memories using these high school scrapbooking ideas

High school is a time to explore -- a time to learn new things, meet new friends, and prepare for the transition into adulthood, and these high school scrapbooking ideas will help you chronicle those high school memoeries.

High school will help shape your child into the person that he or she will become. Many scrapbookers create entire books about their child’s elementary school years, but fail to adequately document the high school experience. So with these high school scrapbooking ideas you can now give your teen the attention he or she deserves!

High school scrapbooking ideas for your children should obviously include all the major milestones like;

  • prom,

  • homecoming,

  • graduation etc.

Important “firsts” such as the;

  • first date,

  • first car,

  • first job should also have a place in your child’s scrapbook.

If your child participates in sports or other extra curricular activities, you’ll have to document these experiences as well. School scrapbooking ideas should always be tailored to your teen’s interests and personality.

Creating a themed scrapbook can help your teen preserve his or her high school memories. School theme albums can include;

  • a mini-book about the college selection process,

  • an album celebrating special friends,

  • or a scrapbook that documents his or her favorite things about the high school experience.

School scrapbooking ideas can also include creating an album to showcase your child’s academic work; old research papers or science projects will be a wonderful keepsake in future years.

Graduation is a very important part of the high school experience. Graduation scrapbooking ideas can include creating a customized guestbook to preserve photos of family and friends along with their wishes for the graduate. A scrapbook of school portraits interspersed with quotes or poems about graduation can also be a meaningful keepsake.

When creating school layouts for your child, don’t forget to include him or her in the fun! Ask your teen for his scrapbooking ideas. Your child can also help you to choose embellishments or provide information to complete your journaling. “Interviewing” your teen to create his or her scrapbook is a great opportunity to learn more about your child’s interests, hopes, dreams, and goals.

While it’s certainly fun to scrapbook photos of your child, don’t forget to document your own high school memories! If you are creating a scrapbook for yourself, you may not feel like you have enough photos. However, many outstanding scrapbook pages feature journaling as the dominant element.

Your high school scrapbooking ideas may include experimenting with different font styles or using embellishments with a slightly retro feel. There are many manufacturers that produce patterned papers, stickers, and other 3-D embellishments that evoke memories of the 60’s, 70’s, or 80’s.
