How to Make a Preschool Memory Book: a Perfect End of Year Activity


You, your kids, and their parents will LOVE these preschool memory books. They are the perfect end-of-the-school-year activity for your preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten classroom.

There are lots of end-of-the-school-year activities out there.  Unfortunately, many of them are too advanced for early childhood educators to use.  I have designed a memory book specifically for little learners.  The printable contains MANY options so that you can personalize the books for your kids.

End of the year memory book

You can adapt this end-of-the-school-year activity for the abilities of your children and for the time that you are able to work on the project.

Two Size Options

The memory book resource includes both full sheet and half-sheet options so you can print the size that you prefer.  You can customize your covers with kids’ names, your school name, and year.

Begin By Printing the Thumbnail Pages

Because there are so many page options, I recommend that you print off the thumbnail pages at the beginning of the document.  These thumbnail pages help you to easily see all of the options.  Check off the pages that you want to print and print your selection.

Print out the thumbnail pictures first as part of your Preschool Memory Book.

Here are some of the pages that you can add to your book:

  • Title page (can be customized)
  • Self-portrait or photo pages
  • Class photo page
  • Handprint page
  • Teacher page
  • Favorite activity, song, book
  • Editable favorite page
  • What I learned this year…
  • I was proud when….
  • I am good at…
  • When I grow up I want to…
  • My summer plans…
  • My friends
  • Customize an editable page
  • A note from my teacher/teachers

Customize the Editable Pages

Some of the pages allow for some customization.  The editable pages are set up as a form. You will need to click on the existing text, delete it, and add your own text to the form.  There is no need for you to install special fonts, but you will need the newest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader in order for the font to appear as pictured.

Some pages are editable in your Preschool Memory Book.

After you have printed all of the pages, you can help your kids complete their books.

“This was my favorite project all year. Saying goodbye to students is never easy but it was so great going over our “yearbooks” together and remembering all of our fun times. Such a great product that students and parents love”
