How to Make a Scrapbook for a Kindergarten Teacher

A scrapbook is a memorable way to document a year in your child's life by arranging photos, poems, notes and momentos in an artistic format. It is also a creative gift idea for a kindergarten teacher. Express your gratitude and the love and respect of her young students by compiling a scrapbook that reflects what a great job she did. Try these tips to make a beautiful and organized scrapbook that she will enjoy for years to come.

Things You'll Need

  •     Large scrapbook
  •     Markers
  •     Glue
  •     Photos
  •     Stickers and other decorations
  •     Colored paper
  •     Scissors
  •     Printed poems or songs
  •     Newspaper clippings, brochures
  •     Stationery
  •     Gift certificate
  •     Ribbon


  1. Purchase a large scrapbook or drawing book with blank pages inside. Divide sections of the book into the months of the school year by using a marker to write the name of the month at the top. Glue a photo of the school, classroom or class on the front cover.

  2. In each section, paste photos of the teacher, students, classroom, student artwork, events and field trips. Write a caption and date below each photo. Add stickers and other decorative elements.

  3. Talk to some of the kindergarten students and ask them to tell you or write down what they like best about their teacher or what she taught them. Write 10 to 15 quotes down on small squares of colored paper and glue them throughout the scrapbook.

  4. Choose a few favorite poems or songs that you know the teacher will like. Type them up, print them out and paste them in the scrapbook. Also add newspaper clippings and brochures about the teacher's favorite sports team, hobbies or community events.

  5. Write a brief letter to the teacher about what you and other parents appreciate about her, and add this to the scrapbook. At the end of the scrapbook, add a gift certificate for her favorite store, dinner at her favorite restaurant, a spa treatment or other gift. Glue a ribbon horizontally around the outside of the scrapbook. Tie the ribbon into a bow to close the scrapbook.

Tips & Warnings

  1. Keep the scrapbook tidy and uncluttered by choosing only those things that are relevant to the teacher.

  2. Ensure that you have other parents' permission before taking or using photos and speaking to any of the other students in the class.
