My boys (Liam, age 10, deafblind; and Finn, age 7, typical vision/hearing), Grandma and I took a trip to visit family in Minnesota. It's a trip we take every summer and the boys always look forward to it.
Making a Journal Photo Book
This year we took pictures and we turned it into a journal photo book. I used Walmart.com to create the photo book, but there are many sites that you can use to create a photo book (e.g. Shutterfly).
Both boys helped me decide what to write on the pages.
Once we received the book, Liam and I took turns writing and adding braille to the book so that it is accessible for everyone.
I used braille label paper to attach the braille to the pages.
Sample Pages of Photo Book
Liam is in a tan kayak on the lake in shallow water.
Finn and Liam are sitting on the big boots of Paul Bunyan. Paul Bunyan was fun. We rode on a train and a lot of rides.
Liam and Finn enjoyed visiting great grandma at her apartment.
This was a fun and easy way to create a memory of our summer trip that both boys are able to share with friends and family. It was also a fun and motivating way work on writing during the summer, for both boys!
