>A memory box is a decorated box for storing special items. Usually they are made to remember a person or a special event. For example, if you went on a vacation, or a friend was moving away, you might make a memory box.
You will need: a small box with a lid (like a shoebox), mementos, glue or tape, ribbon, photos, glitter, stickers and other things you would like to use to decorate your box.
Decorate both the inside and outside of the box. You can glue your mementos (special items like pictures, ticket stubs and postcards) onto the box or simply place them inside.
Make this a family activity: Ask for special items from your family members to add to your memory box or make it a family related memory box.
This activity promotes memory and creativity skills.
