My "Me" Scrapbook


  • Scrapbook
  • Scissors
  • Photos
  • Magazines
  • Paste or glue

The purpose of this activity is to start and maintain a personal scrapbook. It is ongoing, but does not have to be kept up daily.

  1. Start on the first blank page of your scrapbook and write your name, date of birth, address, and any other personal details.
  2. Thereafter, fill each page with pictures, photos, drawings, writings, and items that reflect who you are and who you want to be. Remember to include the date each time you find something you want to paste in. You can even include mementos such as tickets and postcards if they have personal significance. In the years to come, you will treasure this "me" book that you have made.
Note: Knowing who you are and what you want is fundamental to building positive self-esteem.
