This is one of my go-to activities! I love this little, mini-book! And I think you will, too!
I've made books to help children overcome the fear of a fire drill by drawing all of the things that happen and what the child is supposed to do. I've made books to show children how to interact appropriately with others (one of those was called "I use Nice Hands!")
I've made vocabulary books, mini reading books, sequencing books, sight word books, "My Classmates" books. My daughter has made just-for-fun books. I could go on and on and on!
Use your imagination as to what you would want to put in a mini book!
Here is a short video of how to make it.
Once you start making these little guys, you'll find 1,000 ways to use them! Have fun!
Here are some stills from the video, if it helps to see the steps more slowly!
1. Fold in half:
2. Fold in half again:
3. And fold that in half again:
Now, you'll have 8 portions:
4. Then cut from the folded side to the middle:
So, you'll be able to see a hole in the middle:
5. Fold it into a book shape so the hole in the middle opens up:
Keep folding and crease well. Now, you have a little book! A mini-book!
Next, I'll show you how to make Sequencing books! These are some of my favorites!!
