I just finished designing a couple of books on Mixbook that I'm really excited to use. My parents used to ask me a page of questions every year, and my younger siblings. The answers were often hilarious or precious. I started this tradition with my niece and nephew when they were 2, and once they reached 3 I thought that that was the perfect age to start. My son Sam will be 3 in April, and I'm excited to go thru this book with him every year on his birthday.
Here are what the covers look like. You can click on these covers and edit them for your own family. Just change the name / gender on the cover and the inside dedication. You can also choose from several different cover pictures or designs. I was really happy with their collection, it looked really modern. Also, you can get 50% off your first order with the coupon code MXNCWND.
Here are the questions that I collected to ask my kids each year in case you want to design your own book or just use paper.
