If you've got some keen little chefs on your hands and are wondering what to do on a rainy day, the perfect activity might just be to make a family recipe book. Here are the details: What You NeedUnlined journal Recipe cards (the more sauce-splattered, the better) Wine or Champagne labels Photos from family meals Adhesive Photo corners Ruler Shimmery alphabet stickers (available at crafts stores) RibbonWhat to DoColor-copy all recipe cards, photos, and labels if you want to preserve the originals or make more than one gift book. Compile the memorabilia by time period, holiday, or any other theme that inspires you. Affix the items horizontally in the journal. Use photo corners for pictures and recipe cards and adhesive for labels and clippings. Stick a title on the front of the journal with alphabet stickers (using a ruler helps), and finish off with a ribbon.
