I made a free printable for myself (and to share with you!) to help aid in keeping memories of the kids that has some fun interview questions for kids to answer about all their favorite stuff.
While, we’re all about the memory making, I’m horrible at capturing the memories I have with my kids onto paper. I’ve found a couple ideas that work for me, such as the birthday photo to make every year, and this year-end interview with the kids.
Complete honesty time: I bet I don’t have over a dozen photos printed of George and none yet of Louis (not counting professionally taken, but those are even very few).
Henry’s baby book got filled out. George’s got started…. Louis’s… well, I bought one.
Yep. That’s me. My excuse is this blog is my record of them growing up. Good enough excuse, right?
Here are fun ways to let the kids help with a photo project!
Interview Questions for Kids Save the Day!
Something I can handle is doing something once a year to capture quick memories. I created a quick little interview to ask the kids about their favorites!
You can download the Year-End Interview Questions for Kids free printable and ask your kids too!
Jot down their answers and put it in a basic scrapbook (affiliate link) if you have one. Or have them fill it out if they’re able to (so cute in their handwriting!).
I found a few other year-end interviews for kids that I grabbed ideas from, including:
- Dear Harrison, 20 Questions to Ask Your Kids Each Year
- All for the Boys, 2013 Kid Interview
- Meet the Dubiens, Interview with her Daughter
- Teach Mama, New Year’s Interview a Fun Family Tradition

Below, you can check out Henry and George’s interviews that I recorded and sent off to an online video editing service to put some oomph into it and make it all professional. Love these boys! I can’t wait to include Louis in this next year!
