Need an activity for your child’s second birthday? Entertain pint-size party goers with an arts and craft project that transforms into a guestbook for your child.

Favored Party Project

  • Have your guests — children and adults both, including family — draw and stick stickers on pieces of colorful construction paper to produce pages for the book.
  • Be sure everyone includes his or her name on their masterpieces.
  • Decorate a cover with the title “(name of child)’s 2nd Birthday Scrapbook.”
  • If you’re opening gifts at the party — or even afterward – consider jotting down which guests brought which presents. This will not only be a special reminder for years to come, but also an easy way to help you write thank-you cards later.
  • After the party, paste a copy of the party invitation and a few snapshots from the bash on pieces of construction paper.
  • Laminate and bind the pages together, either using binder rings or having spirals put in at an office-supply store.

What a nice piece of childhood your little one can take with her as she grows!
