Keep as an idea for One Day! secretly have every teacher (from Pre-k to senior year) sign this book, and give to your child as a surprise on their graduation. If we live in America

girl version of the the instructions to go in the front of the book for a teacher to leave a note in "oh the places you will go"

SO doing this for my kiddos someday... send "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss each year on the last day of school. Don't tell your kids and let them read years of messages on their graduation day! I started this with Bryce in playschool last year.

very first day and very last day of school. Must remember this!!

Great idea for hand prints

Hands to remember - trace your child's hand every first day of school. How cool!

“I graduated High School this week. Following the ceremony he handed me a bag with a copy of ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go,’ by Doctor Seuss inside. At first I just smiled, but then he told me ‘No, open it up. Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I’ve gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book.'"

Reading with your Child

Memory binders for my children. Much more do-able than trying to keep scrapbooks for all my children I am already about 3 years behind on my scrapbooks! So new plan- try to keep a set of family scrapbooks as up to date as possible, while keeping memory binders for my children, then make my kids their own special scrapbooks when they graduate from high school.

Use a glue gun to prevent kids shoes from slipping- plus tons of other great parenting hacks! Way too cool!

Family Dinner Questions! Choose one a night and have everyone answer it! You'll learn more than you'd even imagine...have some good laughs too! Free printables with all the questions here!

AMAZING idea.... "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" - Starting in preschool and every year on up, give this book to your child's teacher at the end of the school year. Have the teacher write a little note to your child. Then when your child graduates, give it as a gift. It will be so fun to see all the little notes.

Love this idea-- At the end of each school year, have each of your child's teachers sign a copy of Oh, the Places You'll Go and give your son or daughter the signed book as a high school graduation gift!

Key chains, charms, bookmarks, etc.. from your child's art. I love this!
