Preschool Book

My son started preschool last year only going two days a week. The school he goes to uses Tools of the Mind as their curriculum. I was so blown away by this program and it was great seeing the growth over the school year. I know a lot of parents are cautious to send their child to one, but a Steiner Preschool can be absolutely fantastic for both of a child and a parent. He came home most of the days with is play plan, science eyes and artwork. I really wanted to be able to preserve this for him and keep the collection in an organized way. So I decided to make it into a book. The pages varied in sizes so I had to find a way to make it all work. Since the majority of the preschool material was 5 1/5 x 8 I decide I would scan or photograph the large items and reduce them in size to make a 6 x 9 finished bound book.

I decided to use Zoe as my paper pack for the cover. I mixed it with pomegranate and honey cardstock. I used my Artbooking cartrige to cut the apple and photos mat. The new Jennifer’s Hand B1484 alphabet stamp set with Slate ink. I did use my black journaling pen to trace the number to make them stand out a bit.Zoe ~ School ~ catscrapbooking.comOn the inside of the cover I used his class photo and name plate from school. He would come in every morning and find the one with his name on it and then put it on a board depending on the answer to the question of the day.

The play plans are the key to getting them to start writing their names and drawing a picture of themselves. The will also write their plan for the center they are going to. For this divider I just wanted to use the stick figure since he started drawing a bit more of one by the end of the year. The title was cut using Artistry and stick figure is a SVG file with my Silhouette.

He only brought home a few but I wanted to preserve these as well. The title was cut using Artistry and microscope and atom are SVG files with my Silhouette.Preschool book ~ artwork ~ catscrapbooking.com

This was the last section and since most of the artwork was small or too big I just photographed it all and will include a photo of the pieces along with a few of the original artwork. The title was cut using Artistry and the pallet and brush are SVG files with my Silhouette.

Happy Crafting!
