March break is fast approaching and if you're venturing somewhere with your family it's a good time to start or continue family traditions to create lasting memories. Why bother? Simply because it's fun, it can be free, and as our family has discovered: it becomes important over time. Small objects and collections can be fantastic keepsakes and will bring back warm memories for years to come. Each family member can have his/her own collection or it can be done together.
Here's a visual board of some souvenir ideas to collect over time and some great ways to keep them and display them (which is also important!). What I love most about this idea is that we don't really need to travel far to record fun experiences. It's a matter of finding what works for each person or family. Feel free to add to the board or leave a comment here or on my FB page.
When we travel, I love the idea of getting local traditional toys, rocks, postcards, and tiny sand bottles but there's so much more that can be done to remember a special experience and/or place! Click on the link to see my Pinterest idea board.

Now... how about your family? Any special traditions you'd like to share? Please feel free to do so! Happy Break everyone!
