Yearbooks That Rock: How to Make Them Fun and Memorable for Kids!

It’s time for yearbooks, get ready and make them fun!

With a few creative ideas and some enthusiastic participation from the students, your child’s yearbook will be a highlight of their academic journey.

Here are some fun ways to make the yearbook process enjoyable and engaging: 


Choose an Exciting Theme - Let your imagination run wild and pick a theme that will make the yearbook stand out. How about a "Space Odyssey" or a "Magical Kingdom" theme? The sky's the limit!


Involve the Kids - Get the kids involved in creating their yearbook by asking them to submit drawings, photos, or stories about their favorite school moments. This is a great way to showcase their creativity and make the yearbook more personal.


Snap, Snap, Snap! - Take lots of fun and silly photos of the kids. Don't be afraid to capture candid moments and spontaneous laughs! Make sure you also take class photos, as well as group shots that showcase the kids' unique personalities.


Personalize It - Add some pizzazz to the yearbook by including fun facts, quotes, and messages from the kids and teachers. You could even create a "Who's Who" section that highlights each student's special talents and interests.


Make It Interactive - Keep the kids engaged by adding interactive elements like puzzles, quizzes, or fun games to the yearbook. You could even create a scavenger hunt that encourages the kids to flip through the pages and discover hidden surprises!


Autograph Away - Leave plenty of space for the kids to write messages and sign each other's yearbooks. This is a great opportunity for them to express their gratitude and create lasting memories.


Looking to add a personal touch and capture cherished memories of your child's grade and class?

A traditional yearbook typically includes a few pages for the school administrators, faculty and other staff members, class or student portraits, several pages for clubs, teams or other group photos, a section for special awards, event pages with a collage of school events, and graduating class coverage. 

But, who are the kids in your child’s class, will your child remember any details about them? 

Students see their classmates and teachers every day, yet there are plenty of things they don’t know about them. Do they like cats or dogs? Is there favorite singer Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber? Do they prefer pizza or burgers? Do they play soccer or do gymnastics? Or play the violin or piano? What’s their favorite movie? What apps or games do they like to play? Is their favorite subject Math or Science? 

Wouldn’t it be interesting to see how your child's preferences change every year? 

And a few years from now, wouldn't it be amazing to look back and see what your kids dreamed of becoming when they grew up, and what career paths they ultimately pursued? And wouldn’t it be fun for your kids to reminisce about their early school years, crack jokes about what happened in class, and have the “Do you remember Mr. Smith, our social studies teacher?”-conversations? 


My Friends and I book pages

 The My Friends and I book’s got you covered. My Friends and I is a fun, interactive, timeless memory book for children ages 5-12, that captures memories of the young book owners, their friends, classmates, teachers, coaches, family members, or any other person in their lives.

The book travels from friend to friend, who will answer questions like: What is your favorite food? What do you like to do in your free time? What songs do you like to listen to? What books do you like to read? What do you want to be when you grow up?

A picture box allows them to insert a photograph or to draw a picture of their own.


Get your child's yearbook AND treat your kids to their very own My Friends and I book! Encourage them to bring it to school and have their classmates, teachers, and favorite staff members fill it out and sign it. It's a fantastic way to create lasting memories of their school days and the people who made them special!
