Family Sketch Book

DSC_0066  DSC_0055

I love this idea of a family sketch book from Cakies: just leave a big, blank pad in a common area of the house—the coffee table or kitchen—and when the mood strikes, anyone can scribble away. Make sure to date page one, and when it's full, break out a new one. Such a fun way to preserve your kids doodles (and yours) in a tidy way!

    Nothing quiets a bored child like a pad and pencils. I can’t tell you how many episodes of American Idol I have made it through while my little ones color outside the lines!

    My daughter is 13 years old now. We started this sketch book idea when she was four or five. I would give her a fresh book on the last day of school and it kept all of her summer memories safe. We like to look back now at messages that older cousins left for her while we shared our week-long beach vacation with extended family. The drawings and records of what was happening in our life are precious. Even the games of hangman and tic tac toe are special!!

    Great Idea! There is certainly no shortage of crayons , markers or glitter pens in our house. This is an excellent way to save all of our kids “projects” for later viewing.
    Thanks!

    I have one of those for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. She has filled three and now she is onto number 4. She loves to draw with pencil and markers and I like that I can keep them for her memory keepsake box which I plan to give her when she grows up.
