Cute idea for taking your child's picture at fall time. Arrange leaves or pumpkins in the shape of your child's age at that time, and take the picture with the child beside it. Do this each year for darling keepsake photos.
Oh, how I wish I had known about this years ago! Trace your child's hand at every birthday and see it grow. Glue one to the other, but do not glue them down to the mat. (That way you can add next years hand to the back).
