Do your children love to write their own stories? Do you go through more pads of blank paper than pairs of shoes? Perhaps you’re at your local public library at least once a week? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, your child might be a bookworm. And that’s awesome! Loving the written word is a wonderful habit to encourage in your children. This week’s craft roundup is all about books, from making mini notebooks to a DIY binder to keep track of story ideas.
You don’t need a lot of supplies to try bookbinding on your own! The House That Lars Built shows you how to create a simple notebook from a paper bag.
Cathy Durso’s colorful notebook tutorial is so easy no words are needed. Just follow along with her photos!
