Board Book Makeover

If you have a little tyke, chances are really good that you own more than one little board book that was picked up from who knows where and is never read. Yesterday, Ava and I got out construction paper, scissors, and glue, and we got busy remaking one such little board book. I cut and she glued.

So far, we have only covered the pages, but our next step is to decorate them. Here are some book ideas to create using crayons, stickers, paper, magazine pictures, photos, etc.: Shapes, Colors, Foods/Cookbook, Songbook, "My Day", "Why I Love You" gift for a loved one, book for little brother or sister, and so on... It's also a great way to use some of those "so cute" animal pictures you took at the zoo, but now don't know what to do with. Also, you could make your own Bible story book, by letting your child illustrate their Sunday School lesson(s).

Jazz it up - it's yours!

  1. I love this idea! It has so many possibilities. Children's Sunday school teachers (or children's teachers in general) could use this idea for great Bible story/Bible truth reinforcement aides. A fun idea with so many potential benefits in the making of the books and in using them.
    You do have the neatest ideas. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for reading! I look forward to reading your comments...
