School Memory Keeper

Our kids have grown taller and so much wiser as we bid farewell to another school year. They also have to say goodbye to special people who have helped shaped their personality, the Teachers.

I found the perfect way to preserve school memories and very special graduation gift as well!

Mel of More Organised shared the idea of gathering messages from teachers and have them write it on your kid’s favorite book. You, the parent will do this each year at the end of school year. It will be ideal if you can start this as early as nursery or baby daycare.

I completely forgot about it last term, thankfully Harkee of As They Grow posted about it on her IG stories at the last week of Chloe’s school.  Late at night, I crammed looking for a hard bound  book with a lot of blank pages.

Luckily, I have a hard bound copy of  “Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!” by Dr. Suess. Still need to do this memorabilia for my eldest,  a reminder has been scheduled in our calendar.

How do you start?

1. Choose a book preferably hard bound with plenty of blank space for the teachers to write on. Books like “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” from Dr. Suess are famous for this purpose.

2. Write a letter to the teachers explaining what the book is for. Make sure you mention when you intend to get it back.

3. Send the book during the last 2 week of school term. I packaged ours in a sealed envelop and ask the office to hand it the teacher.
