Memory binders. As an alternative to scrapbooking EVERY scrap of special paper the kids receive, do these memory binders. Just as special and much less effort.

I like the idea of Memory Binders with kid's special papers

Free Printable! Ask the same 20 questions year after year (1-18, but probably age 3 or 4 is a great age to start) and see how your child's responses change year to year. Makes a great keepsake to give to them when they turn 18.
