We always enjoy spending time outdoors, whether we’re active or just relaxing – it’s a great way to get in some quality time together as a family in the midst of a busy season of life. When we heard that June was “Get Outdoors Month,” it was fun to look back over the month and remember all the fun we had together as a family outdoors.
We started the month off with a challenge to our friends on Instagram and Facebook to “Get Outside and Get Active”:
We even made a point to get outdoors on days when the to-do list was a mile long!
A spontaneous trip to the beach was the highlight of the middle of the month:
I enjoyed my new “garden” in the mornings while having my coffee and quiet time:
We had a great time getting outdoors during the month of June, and I wanted to do something fun with the kids to remember it. That’s why when I was at Kroger last week picking up some Back to Nature Macaroni & Cheese Dinner for a picnic lunch, I decided to pick up a box of Back to Nature Silly Sea Life Macaroni & Cheese Dinner, too. We will need a few boxes to use on National Mac & Cheese Day which is July 14th!
Back to Nature Mac & Cheese is a creamy, cheesy, and delicious way to provide my kids with a good source of calcium and protein. With no artificial flavors, preservatives, or synthetic colors, this organic non-GMO pasta is a hit with Mom and the kids!
I was instantly inspired to use the Silly Sea Life pasta to have the kids create a scrapbook page with photos from our trip to the beach!
How to Create a Silly Sea Life Scrapbook Page
Step One: Gather your supplies
I gathered up some fun scrapbooking supplies for the kids to use:
- colorful cardstock
- washi tape
- paper punch
- Silly Sea Life pasta pieces
- photos from our trip to the beach
Step Two: Sketch a Rough Draft
Sometime it can be totally overwhelming to get started with a new scrapbook page. Once you’ve picked out the photos you want to include, it’s best to grab a scrap piece of paper to sketch out a rough draft of how you want your final page to look.
By sketching out a rough draft, you can begin to identify the elements you want to add to your page.
Step Three: Frame and Mount Your Photos
I rarely paste a photo directly to the background page – I almost always add a frame to the photos before mounting it on the page.
Once your photos are framed, you can mount them on the page.
Step Four: Add Embellishments
Using the Silly Sea Life pasta, additional paper pieces, washi tape, and any other decorative pieces you have, decorate your scrapbook page.
We had a fun idea to use markers to create speech bubbles for the Silly Sea Life creatures to create the photo captions.
Step Five: Add the Page to Your Family’s Scrapbook
We have a family scrapbook a friend started for us a few years ago, and we’re slowly adding new pages to it as we capture our family memories.
We love looking through the pages of our family scrapbook, remembering all the fun times we’ve had together as a family!
