Time for a craft. I promised Alex a craft after his baby brother went to bed. Promises are meant to be kept so I racked my brain for a quick, yet fun, activity to do. A Book! I love books, he loves books and he's been saying the cutest things lately. So, I decided to throw together a homemade book about one of his favorite topics and let him come up with the entire story. Brilliant. I'm thinking this will become one of a series of books. We started with a book about dolphins. We did this entire craft project in under an hour too. So, grab:
Supplies and the smiling imaginative kiddo Alex.
The "hard back" is cut from a Rice Krispies box and folded in half to make a book size 6" wide x 7 3/4" high.
You can make the book any size you would like.
After tracing I cut just inside the line to make sure the pages didn't stick out of the cover.
You can get as simple or as detailed as you want. You can easily adapt the size, story length, and number of pages as you want. If you are worried about the pictures showing through to the other side you could also use a thicker paper. Have fun making the cutest little stories!
