Summer Scrapbooking Ideas

Everyone can work together to create a family scrapbook for the Summer season. Have each family member complete the checklist and you’ll be amazed at all the different perspectives.

Then, gather the images for a family scrapbook or have everyone complete their own book for the Summer. This would make a wonderful pocket page album!

Summer Writing Prompt

Complete the checklist in order together or give everyone their own copy and let them check off images as they see opportunities.

When you’re finished, have everyone write a small section about what Summer means to them or their favorite Summer memory to include in the scrapbook.

Photography Inspiration

Remember when our kids were little and we took tons of pictures every day? If you’ve realized you aren’t taking as many pictures, this printable scrapbooking idea checklist is the perfect way to encourage more photos this Summer.

Pictures from the family BBQ, pictures of the first ice creams of Summer, a messy photo from that big watermelon your kids are digging into… There are so many great ideas to get you going!

Scrapbooking Layouts

Then, create fun layouts to match the page themes. I know you’re already thinking about a background and embellishments for that watermelon page! What about “rain” or “shells”? This free printable Summer scrapbooking ideas photo challenge is so inspiring.

More Summer Fun for Families

Finally, let this scrapbooking idea printable challenge you to create new memories with your family this Summer. I know it’s hard to do certain things right now, but there is still so much fun to be had this Summer. Here are some ideas from the photo challenge to get you started:

Sun Hat

I love a great hat! Those big floppy sun hats are totally my jam. How about snagging a photo of everyone in a floppy hat this Summer?

If floppy hats aren’t your thing, you can always get everyone ball caps or even fishing hats. Better yet, go fishing together in your hats for lots of fun Summer memory-making together. Don’t forget to snag a picture.


Have fun exploring rainbows with your family. Create rainbow art and talk about the symbolism. Rainbows can mean so many things to so many people. It’s a great opportunity to explore light and weather this Summer.


Make some fresh-squeezed lemonade with your kids this Summer. It’s a great way to have fun together in the kitchen. Plus, who doesn’t love a cool glass of homemade lemonade in Summer? Don’t forget to freeze some for a delicious frozen treat later.


How about a Summer reading challenge? See who can read the most books this Summer and give the winner a prize. You can determine the reward together as a family for even more fun.

I hope by the end of Summer, you have tons of photos and lots of scrapbooking inspiration to fill your memory books. I hope you have a wonderful Summer.
