Source The photograph that has become known as "Migrant Mother" is one of a series of photographs that Dorothea Lange made in February or March of in Nipomo, California.
By Mandi Johnson Reading is kind of a big deal at our house, but as much as we value books, we love family most of all! I remember seeing this family photo board book idea on A Cup of Jo and thinking I would love to try making something like that for our kiddo. It turned out to be a great project that Lucy just loves!
We enjoy looking at each page and watching her point at the faces when we call out the names. Pretty soon she'll be spelling the names, and then you know what comes next…. Ivy League college applications!
After a couple of tries, I figured out a quick and easy way to make this board book using common crafting tools and supplies. It looks pretty nice, and I think it'll hold up well too!

Check out the simple instructions below. Cut 5" x 5" pieces of chipboard. It's important that each size is exact, or your final pages will be a little wonky. But if you don't mind the wonkiness, then I don't mind, and I doubt your toddler will mind either.
Not all people need to be perfectionists! Cut your photos to the same size as your chipboard squares— 5" x 5". I printed two 5" x 5" photos with names on them onto each sheet of photo paper, and then trimmed them down to their exact size.
If you don't have a printer at home, you can take your 8. It is important that your paper be photo quality though, so it can hold up to being handled frequently.
Also— if you don't have software to add names to the photos, you can use a Sharpie paint pen to add white or black writing on the photos. Leave a tiny bit of space between each page for the thickness of the photos that you'll adhere to them.
Carefully trim away the excess tape with an X-Acto blade. At this point, check to make sure you have enough chipboard pages for each photo you plan to put inside the book.
Don't forget to add photos of family pets! Make sure the back of each photo is evenly coated all the way to the edgesbut try not to use too much adhesive or it will build up under the paper and goop will ooze out the sides of the page. Carefully match up the corners of your photo to the corners of the chipboard piece it's going on.
Starting at the outer edge of the paper, smooth the paper onto the chipboard with the back of your hand. For aesthetic purposes, I think it's more important that the outer edges of the photos match up with the chipboard than for the inner edges to meet up. If you cut them perfectly to size, it won't matter— it'll be a perfect fit!Essay Writing Activities.
