This fun activity is the perfect way for children of all ages to write down all their special memories in a meaningful way before heading out on break for the summer.

​Our end of year memory book also makes a great activity for teachers to use in the last week of school. 

Students in all grade levels will enjoy completing these end of year memory book activities. Spread the journal-style pages out over the last weeks of school to create a beautiful keepsake children can take home to show their family members when school is out.

​Our daughter has created an end of year memory book for every grade level since her first year of school – we have so much fun flipping through her end of year memory pages and reminiscing about her field trips, teachers and class family.
