Easter Scrapbooking Ideas
By Rachel Paxton
Easter is a great time to capture family photographs for scrapbooking. Even
if you don't scrapbook, planning your picture taking ahead of time ensures
you won't miss any of these great family memories. No family traditions?
Then this is a great time to start!
Here are some Easter photograph ideas for scrapbooking:
Photograph spring flowers in bloom. Daffodils and tulips will make a
colorful contrast to your other photographs
Have your kids help you make Easter cookies or an Easter
cake. Snap a picture of them working in the kitchen and then make sure to
take a picture of the finished product. We made a layer cake and arranged it
on a thick piece of cardboard covered with] aluminum foil. It was lemon cake
with lemon filling and pink frosting. We decorated it with store-bought
Easter candy. Around the base of the cake we arranged Easter grass and added
chocolate eggs and peeps for decoration. It made a great picture!
Gingerbread houses aren't just for Christmas! Make a
gingerbread house and decorate it for Easter with pastel colors and lots of
Easter candy. The possibilities are limitless.
If your family attends Easter church services, make sure to
get a picture of your girls in their Easter dresses. Dressing up is a great
excuse to take a picture.
Coloring Easter eggs never gets old, whatever the age of
your kids! They never get tired of showing you how creative they are. Join
in on the fun and then take a picture of the finished product.
Easter egg hunts are also fun for the whole family. Take
some good action pictures and get a picture of your kids with their Easter
Easter dinners are a great time to take family pictures.
It's a good time to take pictures of relatives you don't often see, and fun
to get pictures of the family laughing and enjoying a meal together. Take
pictures of any of the good food you want to remember later.
Have fun picture taking, and have a happy Easter!
