Make a storybook about your kids, for your kids

Maren and Maisy Want to Play Soccer!

Maren and Maisy Want to Play Soccer!

This is the project I’ve been so excited to share with everyone!! An idea came to me to make a simple storybook that the girls could be the stars of. I told the girls about the basic idea and they helped form the story and were fun participants in taking the photos to act out the scenes for the book.  I tried to use simple words in hopes that Maisy may soon be able to read this book on her own.

We shot the photos during the morning, I uploaded and created the book using Shutterfly that evening and now, a week later, the storybook is in our hands!

Mama loves Maren and Maisy so much.  She had a lot of fun making this book for you both. Fill in the rest of this book with your fun drawings and things that make you happy.

Shutterfly has a rule that the book has to be 20 pages long and our story just wasn’t going to fill the space, so I left the remaining pages at the back of the book blank for the girls to be creative and complete the pages with whatever comes to them.  I can’t imagine what a treasure this book will be in the future!

I totally appreciate comments and would love to hear from you.  Also, be sure to subscribe via email, follow on Facebook and on Pinterest so you don’t miss any fun updates!  Thanks for reading.
