Here’s another great project for you to do solo or with your family: create online photo books. One of my friends shared with me the other day that she is building a photo book online to capture this time sheltering at home. This is what she is doing:
- She chose one of the many online photo book design companies that there are to choose from. (Check out some websites and choose your favorite.)
- She takes daily photos of things that are unique and unusual during this time period.
- She goes online every few days or so to add photos and text to her photo book design. It is almost a variation on “journaling”.
When this is “over”, she will complete her design and print copies for herself and her kids. She said of her process, “It has been a way to capture this unscripted time in our lives and a great way to pass this historical event and experience down to our children.”
I loved her project so much I had to share it. Does this inspire you too? Imagine if you get your kids involved too. If you don’t care to document the current times, you can upload old family photos and start writing your family story.
