Coaster albums.......





This summer we took our daughter and three of her friends to a local amusement restaurant called, "Incredible Dave's" - they had a blast playing there. When we got home though, it was raining and they were "bored" and they couldn't go "swimming" Blah! Blah! Funny how kids can get bored so easily (LOL). So, I ran down to the computer and printed out each of the girls, a set of photos that I took from the days activities. I had some coasters on hand that I got in the hot spot section of Target (gotta love target and their dollar area) and I punched some holes in the corner. So I gathered up some tape, ribbon, binder clips and some other embellishments - put all the items out on the dinning room table and called the poor little bored girls into the dinning room. I gave then all the things I had gathered and told them to work on a Memory book of the days activities. THEY HAD A BALL! Each of the four girls did an album. They all enjoyed it, they all made it special to them. They all looked different and unique. Now when they have a bored rainy day, they can pick up their albums and enjoy the memories of a fun summer day.

Feel free to recreate these albums for your own use or if you would like me to make a coaster album for you just use the link at the top right, to request a special order. Thanks!
