Those of you with kids - Do you let your kids help you scrapbook? If not and they are around - what do you have them do?

---------------

I haven't let Kendra help scrapbook yet but she has helped me with a few cards. If they are around (can't go outside, not sleeping, etc) I usually pop in a movie for them and try to get as much done as I can while the movie is playing.

I let Erin help sometimes, if Patrick is otherwise occupied.

maura loves to help me. or work on her own art work beside me. Like she'll color or glue while i'm scrapping.
Aidan will occasionally sit with me while i scrap and just play with the tools. he LOVES the paper trimmer and stamping. So sometimes he'll just do some art work at the table while i scrap.

I don't have kids when I do, but I imagine that when I do, once they're old enough if they like to help me I'll get them their own supplies and let them make their own albums. I think that would be fun for them, and for me! I don't know that I would let them help necessarily because I'm so picky and if they messed up I'd get irritated! I guess you find little ways for them to help out though!

Today when I was going on the monochromatic challenge page, my DD got a snowflake sticker and at first I was going to stop her but then remembered this question, so I let her place the stick on the page.. lol

I usually let her draw, color or paint and watch movies while I scrap or sew...

Right now Mark loves to watch. I usually set him up on a blanket nearby and he's content with his toys. I'm sure once he's older, I'll set him up with some of his own supplies.

Caden scribbled all over a few of my pages once, but I didn't let him

As of now no, I don't let them help but I look forward to the day I can! I hope they are into helping momma for at least a little while
