Starting a Family Collection

boy book collection

People have been collecting things probably since the beginning of time, and it's impossible to name all the different collections out there. Some of the more common collections include stamps, spoons, books, art, antiques, vintage toys, autographs, sports memorabilia, records, and the list goes on and on.

So, if you're not a collector, why would you want your family to start a collection? Well, there are many reasons. First, starting a family collection gives every family member a common goal, which promotes togetherness and teamwork. Also, the actual act of collecting, shopping or searching, displaying, and looking over all your past finds is a great way to spend time together.

Collecting things can also be educational, not only for the kids, but for everyone. If you collect things from every state, that's a great tool to learn about geography and history. If you collect art, that's a great way to learn about art history and what society was like during different decades.
