This is an idea that can be used every year. You will want to make a copy of it for yourself to see how your children change each year.
You will need at least ten 8 ½ x 11 inch card stock pages for each child. On each page each child will write at the name of one of their favorite things. Then they draw a picture or glue on a picture of it. Below they describe it and tell why it is special.
If you give this to a teacher, have your child only include those things from school.
When they are finished, punch holes in the pages and bind them with ribbon, staples or binding from a copy shop.
This is a good gift to give dads, teachers, and grandparents.
