How To Make Your Own Kid Reports

39 Flares 39 Flares ×

How do you record special moments in your children’s lives? I try to take as many photos and videos as I can. I confess I’m not a scrapbooker. My mom made beautiful scrabooks for us growing up but for some reason that gene didn’t get passed along. Thankfully sometimes I find there are other methods that can be just as meaningful. That’s why I was excited to learn about the creative Facebook app, Kid Reports, by Hormel Foods.

Kid ReportThe remind me a bit of the subway art that is so popular these days. The app simple to use and fun too! Kora & Logan enjoyed spending time together helping me make their reports:

Kid Reports ReviewsAren’t they so cute?! Kora loved that we could make hers pink and Logan liked that his was blue.

Kids Reports ReviewTo make a report I just “Liked” the app and then we filled out the information requested including their names, ages, favorite foods, first from the past year, as well as what’s on their wish lists.  You can also set reminders to be emailed to you to return to update the reports.

Kid ReportsI like the reports so much that I printed them out and may frame them and hang them in their room or store them in a scrapbook. Here are some of Kora and Logan’s thoughts on the reports:

I recommend the Kid Reports to anyone looking for a unique way to preserve childhood memories. This is such a simple, fun, and creative method that I can’t wait to use it again soon and tell my sister and sister-in-law about it so they can create reports for their children!

    these reports looks so neat and professional. The kids like them!

  2. ellen beck says:

    I like this idea and how they can be persoanilied just for them. Bunches of ‘subjects’ to use too!

  3. michelle dement says:

    o my gosh i love this idea! I can do lots of crafty things but have never gotten into scrap booking myself either….i always think it looks odd when im done and i wanna start over lol….this is an awesome way to record things and see them later…i love it!

  4. Candice Hull says:

    I am totally stealing this idea! How awesome! I scrapbooked for my first son. I had pages of him walking, crawling, just sitting…it was ridiculous, but he was such a calm baby that slept a lot. Then I had my second and he was up and running so soon that I haven’t done a single page for him and feel awful. I’ll probably do the same amount for him and then switch to your idea.

  5. Dorothy Boucher says:

    what a fantastic idea, love it ;) Thanks for sharing @tisonlyme143

  6. Such a great idea! Adding this one to our memory box!!

  7. Maria Malaveci says:

    So darn cute….! I will definitely have to remember this when my kids start bringing home report cards!

  8. Your kids I mean.. but the reports as well :)

  9. Aaah! they’re soo cute..

  10. This is so cute. And I bet they loved making it by themselves

  11. How cute! I am going to pass this info on to my kids!

  12. Brenda C. says:

    This is so cute! I’m definitely going to use this in the future.

  13. courtney b says:

    so adorable! and may i add much cuter then regular report cards

  14. This is a great idea for us non-crafty people. I really like that you can print it out. I was also surprised to learn that it was created by Hormel Foods- good for them!

  15. Joni Mason says:

    This is SO neat! I used to try and write a journal for my son and could never get the scraps of paper I’d written on composed into a readable format. With this app I can “journal” my 2 year old grandson’s milestones and then he can help when he’s older. Thank you so much for sharing!

  16. The fact that it’s not only simple, but also fun, is really what makes this a great project….thanks for the heads up.

  17. christine jessamine says:

    thanks for sharing, this was alot of fun to do, and i love how it looks

  18. april yedinak says:

    What a cute idea. I should look for something cute like this to make report cards for their grades. My kids homeschool and so far when it is time for grades, I just write them on a slip of paper. Something they could hang up and look at would be nice.

  19. That is such a neat idea!! I would love to make these with my grandsons!

  20. Evelyn Goettner says:

    These are too cute! Great idea! I’ll definitely be making these for my 3 kiddos.

  21. Great idea and cool for the kids that they can be involved also. It would be fun to do one at least once a year to track their progress on growth and to see how their “tastes” change over time.

  22. Heather Hayes Panjon says:

    Very Cool! A Great Way To Document Fun Milestones !:)

  23. I love those! They really do look a lot like all of the subway art projects. You could make a great gallery wall with them.

  24. saminder gumer says:

    this is a great idea. i will have to try it out with the kids. i like that the kids seemed to enjoy it o much as well.

  25. great idea!

  26. I’m not a scrapbooker either. What a great way to catalogue big moments though!

  27. This is a great idea.

  28. That’s a pretty good idea. What I really like is that it’s digital. You have the option to print it out but you can just keep it electronically instead if you choose. When I grew up my mom had boxes of this kind of stuff and I had no idea where to put. To keep it all in one digital space would be perfect!

  29. Jasmine W. says:

    These are so cute!

  30. It’s like an infographic of your kids! How cute!!

  31. My 9 year old would love to make a report about each person in the family. A little newspaper reporter in the making.

  32. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I really like the idea of this app. A new way of preserving memories

  33. I am definitely not a scrapbooker either…this looks like a great app.
    Your kids–and the pink & blue reports–are VERY cute!!

  34. The kids will be happy to have these when they grow up. I have entire school years I can’t remember, simply because I have no pics or something like this to remember them by.

  35. I love the look of those reports, the clean graphics and boxy design is really appealing!

  36. Betty Baez says:

    How cute! my little ones would love this they’d want to hang it on the wall

  37. Mac n cheese and pizza. Your kids are all American! ;)

  38. This is awesome! Always looking for positive things to do with my kids!

  39. This sounds like a great app. You could do it to mark special occasions.

  40. I love this! Thanks for sharing!

  41. That is such a cute but also really functional idea! I love it. It reminds me of a story I heard once on *This American Life* about a couple who had an ‘investors’ meeting’ every month to assess the state of their relationship. That seemed a bit formal for my tastes, but I liked the spirit of it.

  42. What a cute idea! I can see this being a great thing to do every year on their birthdays as well. My only concern is privacy. How public is the information about your kids when you use this app?

  43. I always wanted to get into scrapbooking but never did. This is such a neat app. Off to check it out!
