Make Your Own Book For Kids


  • 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper
  • Stapler
  • Pencils, crayons, markers ect.


Take some regular 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper and fold them in half.  Staple them together at the fold and voila! you have a book. Provide your child with pencils and/or crayons and encourage them to write and/or illustrate their very own book.  As a child, I loved writing and illustrating handmade books like these. I once wrote a book about a tiny horse that got separated from her mother and went on a long adventure before finding her way back home.  Upon returning, she had miraculously grown as big as her mother! Encourage your child’s imagination and don’t worry about words being spelled right or even words at all. At the end of the day, let your child read his or her story to you at bedtime.
