Bringing You the Domestic Renaissance Since 1999

Note: As of 2017, The New Homemaker is an archive. The articles on the site are all original to TNH.

Looking for a project you and your children can do together? Here's one that can be picked up and put down throughout the year: Remembering Journals--scrapbooks devoted to particular subjects or events, assembled primarily by the children. The results can be a valuable "log book" for your family.

Children from about the age of 6 upwards can make these journals but the younger the children, obviously the more you will have to help them. The purpose of the project is to practice writing and drawing skills and to learn about the world around us.

Believe it or not, it's good for you

It's more than driving them to the doctor's office
