A book about me- activity idea submitted by by rose @ oatlands Before and After School Care 03 97056210, Kurrajong Road, Narre Warren South 3805
I put this craft idea together for our children at After School Care and they loved it!
Each day they came in and worked on the book. When they finished we bound the
book and put it on our book shelf so other children can view it!
What I did was put together a book that was going to be all about them. I made a
front page that titled All about me and let the children decorate it as they wished.
The second page was a fact page about them self asking them to put there age ,
middle name, date of birth etc. I laid the pages out creatively and added pictures for
the children to colour in and decorate. The second page asked for such things as did
they have pets, siblings, where they were born, fave time of year etc.
Third page I had the children dedicate to friends and tilted it “my Friends” they listed
there friends and drew pics of them. Fourth page was a short story. I began the
sentence with “My most memorable day was when’’’: and the children wrote a
memory they have. Fifth page was asking for more details such as fave band/music,
fave TV show etc.
The children loved it! I created the book on publisher and printed copies out. I made
the pages fun and funky so they could colour in and even stick in anything to make it
more personal. It ended up been there own little scrap book!
