Here's a great gift idea for a grandchild to make for a grandparent -- a mini photo album of memories using grandma's or grandpa's given name, or just "grandma" or "grandpa."
Parents and children can sort through and choose some favorite photos of a grandparent (including some of grandparent and grandchild). Color photocopy the photographs. Cut each photo, cropping as desired.
For a 5.5 x 8.5 inch finished album, use several sheets of heavier paper, folded in half. Fold enough sheets so that one letter of the person's name has its own half-sheet. For example, for the name "Elizabeth," you would need 5 sheets total to make 9 half-sheets, plus one extra you can use as a cover. Open up all the sheets and tape them edge-to-edge to create a fan-folded booklet. If the person's name has an even number of letters, you can cut one half-sheet extra and tape it to the front as a cover.
In the center of the bottom of each half-sheet, put one letter of the person's name. Make the letters different colors and use flowers, hearts, or other designs to make each letter distinct.
Glue one photo onto each half-sheet that ties into a brief memory you can write out beginning with that letter of the alphabet. For example, a half-sheet with the letter "A" could be "Always smiling" with a photo of grandma and grandchild laughing together.
When you've finished each letter page, write out the grandparent's name on the cover and decorate it in any way you wish.
