Here are the supplies you need to start:
1.) Start by downloading and printing this cover page.
Mount it onto a piece of construction paper. Encourage your child to write their name on the line and color/decorate the cover sheet with markers, crayons, and/or other doo-dads that can be glued onto the cover.
5.) At the end of the month-or whatever time frame you choose for ending this project-assemble the pages in order and punch holes in the edges of each page where you will secure them together. I used a piece of pipe cleaner cut into 2-two inch pieces to loop through the holes and just twisted them lightly to stay locked. You can use metal binder rings from an office supply store, or ribbon or yarn from your local craft store.
I love these make-at-home books that allow children to be authors and illustrators. These would be great to read through/share during Thanksgiving dinner gatherings or to give as gifts to the grandparents.
These types of activities provide children with exposure to writing and literacy/reading exploration of their own making. I hope you enjoy the time helping your child create this “I Am Thankful For” book this Thanksgiving season. For additional Autumn and Thanksgiving themed activities, click here.
