E) "Special and Unique Me"
Toddlers are shaped by their environments in addition to their heredity character traits. By noting down your kid's preferences and reactions to people, things and events, you'll get hints of his or her uniqueness. Scrapbooking these evolving personality traits would document rapid development of your child as a unique individual. Photos showing your child caught in various expressions or unguarded moments will reveal different sides of your kid. A child's personality is like a canvas, painted in many different colors and shades.
F) "Play is Serious Business"
With bountiful supply of pure energy, your toddler probably reminds you of an object in constant motion. Capture a series of such motions in a single play day, or gather a series of photos of your toddler playing different games and activities. The work of a child is not to earn, but to play. Playing with others at playground, figuring out how to work computer, stacking up building blocks, creating first piece of artwork, play is serious business to toddlers. These scrapbook pages will reveal creative workings of your child's mind.
G) "There's Family and Friends Too"
Family and friends are influential presences in a toddler's life. Documenting special relationships or moments your toddler has with others, will remind him or her of how much he or she is loved by others. As grandma's little kitchen helper in baking cookies, as an earnest student of grandpa's on star constellations, a loving big brother hugging baby sister, all these speaks of love in abundance. Even innocent hand-holding and sweet hugs exchanged between inseparable friends are touching moments for pages.
H) "Wild Wild World Out There"
Funny how toddlers will make us voluntarily go places that we haven't been to in ages. It's like reliving our own childhood, through eyes of our toddlers. Playing sand at beach, memorable trip to zoo, magical moments at theme park, amazement at circus stunts, and even travels to other states. A toddler would love to know where in world had they been when they're grown up. So add these to your scrapbook pages as well.
As always, there's heaps of toddler's "movies" you can scrapbook about. Potty training, bathing time, zonking out moments, make-up session and pretend-playing, all these are themes you can gleefully dig into. Time to get imaginative!
Happy scrapping about toddler's movies!
