Make a Book!

During this time my kids get there fair share of reading so I like to switch it up and instead of reading a book they can actually make there own book! Here is how to do it:

Staple paper together, and help your kids write and illustrate a book. You can use real books for direct inspiration or come up with a plot entirely by yourself.

I am a horrible story-teller; I prefer to read the real books, and concoct my own stories based on their plotline.

That’s why I love this game that gives you picture cube prompts to make up your stories (my kids don’t need it as much – I definitely do!).

My daughter, on the other hand, wrote an entire children’s book on her own for her brother. If you really need a break and cannot handle another activity, have them draw the illustrations first.

Have fun!
