Back to School Picture Frame Craft!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It can be a very exciting time for children who are returning to school or it can be an emotional time for a child just beginning their school career. Or, like my daughter, it’s the start of another year of fun activities and adventures because she’s only one!

In any case, it’s nice to document what your child looks like during certain times of the year and compare a future photo to see how they’ve grown. This activity is simple enough for children of all ages, simplifying it for younger children and it has challenging components for older children.
