Zach's Smash Book, kids love Smashing too!!! :)

Hi Everyone

Those of you that follow my blog and are friends on the FB Smash groups, will know just how much I adore Smashbooks and all things Smashy :)

I thought you would like to see my Son Zach's Smash book (who's 11) and the pages he has decorated so far.

I think it is such a wonderful way for kids to share a hobby with you, and crate and capture memories of their own, and keep things that are meaningful to them.
It's great to know they can look back in years to come, and see the things that ment so much to them as a child,
and a wonderful way to capture memories, that over the years, are so very easily forgotten.

I only wish I had had one as a child, I would soooo love to look back now, and re-capture some wonderful memories of my childhood.

My other child Robbie (who's 7) also loves Smashing too, but perhaps not as much, the Wii and Football seem that bit more appealing to him at the moment, lol! But, still he manages the odd pages now and again, and loves it when he does :)

I urge any parents out there to give this a go with their children. Remember, Smashing is for ALL ages, and such fun too!

Anyway, hope you enjoy Zach's pages, he is so chuffed with his Smash book, and would love to see your comments and encouragement.

Hugs and more soon!

Suzie xxxx :)

Hey, Zach, I loved looking inside your SMASHbook, you've done an incredible job!!! I especially love your page about the books you're reading - my son and daughter love Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, but I've never heard of the other author. Is he British? Gangsta Granny is an awesome title, made me laugh! I'll have to look those ones up here in Canada! Keep smashing!!!
