Journal Apps, Online Diaries, and Digital Scrapbooks
Scrapbooks, pictures, and home videos may be the traditional way to preserve and share summer memories, but if you've got a smartphone or tablet, you can use it -- along with some cool websites -- to document everything from lazy days to family road trips. With a little creativity, you can turn your family memories into a comic book, a movie, a digital scrapbook, and more. Encourage kids to express themselves in whatever way feels right to them, even if it's not in a traditional lock-and-key diary. For some teens especially, their social media accounts can become a kind of journal, too. And check out our list of apps that build creativity for even more awesome apps and tools to help kids create and capture all year long.
