Involve the entire family when putting together this project. You will all have a great time choosing items to add. When your extended family or friends come over, share your trips with them.
2. Collect Souvenirs as You Travel
You can pick up items like pebbles, patches, mugs, or magnets while you travel. These items will help you remember your fond memories.
You could also pick up paper maps from the cities and towns you visit. Mark the places you visited with a marker or bright tacks. You can put it in a big picture frame and hang it in your family room.
3. Write Down Notes in Your Journal
When you return from a trip, it can be difficult to remember details about all the places you visited.
Consider picking up a journal for your trip. Set aside some time at the end of your day and write down a few short notes.
Ask each family member to write a paragraph or a few lines. Write down memorable, distinctive, or funny things that happened.
After you have returned from your trip, plan to read the different entries one evening. You and your family can enjoy reminiscing about all the cool things you did.
4. Mail Notes and Postcards Home
Pick up a few postcards from the different places you visit. Write down a few notes and mail them home.
When you get back, you can relive some of the great moments you experienced while abroad. Frame all your postcards in a travel album to keep them safe.
5. Ask Your Kids to Take Photographs While Traveling
While visiting attractions or towns, ask your kids to take some pictures. You could give them an old cell phone to use. Consider picking up a few disposable cameras.
When you get home, it’ll be fun to go through the vacation from your child’s perspective. What did they think was fun or cool? Who did they capture in their pictures?
Place these pictures in a travel album. These are great treasures to have when they are older.
