When I made my children’s baby albums, I wanted to include some notes or thoughts from my husband. Although he flips through albums I’ve made and is supportive of my hobby, I wouldn’t count on him to spend an evening scrapbooking with me!
Instead, I came up with a couple different solutions to include him in the album. I took screenshots of his Facebook status posts for our first child.
I also found a variety of prompts on Pinterest, printed it out on cardstock, and then gave it to him to fill out, which helped his “non-creative” (as he puts it) brain. I asked him list some of his hobbies and interests on a journaling card.
You can also include other family members too if you wanted. If this album is for another child, have his/her siblings share their own thoughts and feelings.
A few other ideas to get others involved:
- What name would you choose for baby? Why?
- Guess the baby’s birth date and/or stats.
- Write down three personality traits you want the baby to have.
- What do you think baby will be when s/he grows up?
