But after watching the same movie for the 3rd (plus) time with each period that sub day--sometimes it gets a little boring and that is when I start inventing things to keep me busy. Like making an 8 page book! :) This book is really sweet! It uses one piece of paper and no tape or glue!! This would be a perfect thing to make with your kids when they say "I'm bored!" Help them make a book and then let them draw/ write their own story. Hey, it worked for me when I was bored! ;)
1. Fold paper (I used 8 1/2 X 11--and the book is kind of small. Ideally you would want a larger size of paper.) in half the hamburger way.
|After I opened the fold, I drew a green line on it just so you could keep track of it better.|
|On the left fold, I drew a pink line.|
|On the right fold I drew a blue line.|
|Notice how all of the lines are folded the same direction so it makes a "bowl" shape.|
|I drew this line purple after I opened it.|
|Use this picture as a reference for the next step.|
Pay attention to where pink and purple line intersect as well as blue and purple.
|Hopefully this makes sense!|
If you cut too far, then you will have to use tape to make the book and it goes down a notch on the cool factor...
|You end up with a star.|
...a book!! And a great form of entertainment for hours!! :)
So since this post is already getting kind of long--you will have to check back later (hopefully tonight) to see the story I wrote!!
Happy Book Writing! :)
