🙂 Power Tips:

- Ideas for Pocket Fillings: Movie/Concert/Theater tickets, lock of hair, first tooth, pictures, favorite clothing tags, coins, journal story… the possibilities are endless!!!
- Super Idea for Pocket Fillings: Make a time capsule and place magazine pictures of items that a child enjoyed for that year of their life! What a neat and organized way to show each year of the child’s life and how they grew! Follow up with a journal entry on how they enjoyed the objects in the pocket! Makes for great conversations when the child has children or even as they grow into the teenage years!
