There are many ways to help your kids make simple books to record their poems, sketches, stories, and doodles. Here is a simple one that requires only a sheet of paper or card stock and a scissor.
Take a standard sheet of paper. Fold in half LENGTHWISE.
OPEN. Fold in half WIDTHWISE. Bring each side up to the MIDDLE so you now have EIGHT RECTANGULAR sections.
Holding the paper so the LONGEST PART of the rectangles are top to bottom, use scissors to cut a slit through the TWO MIDDLE SECTIONS as shown in the photo above.
FLIP the book upright so it stands as shown in the photo below, with the creased side facing UP and open edge facing DOWN.
Bring the open edges toward the middle:
That’s It! You’ve made a small book to use for whatever you like. You can decorate the cover, and use them to send special messages, wishes, hopes, dreams, or whatever catches your fancy.
HINT: If you staple TWO BOOKS – one inside the other – you will have more pages to use for your story. HAPPY BOOK MAKING!
