Now that it is November, we are thinking about Thanksgiving and the things we are most thankful for in our home. I wanted my kids to take some time to think about what they are most thankful for with this little fold out book project.
To Make A Fold Out Book:
You will need 5 pieces of paper to make the fold out book. We did each piece a different color. We used construction paper and folded them to squares, cutting off the extra piece.
Then you will fold it in half every possible way: side to side both directions, then corner to corner both directions, unfolding between each fold. This is just to make creases. Poke in the corners to make the final fold.
Once all of the pieces are folded, you will overlap them at the corners and glue them together.
Let your kids decorate their fold out book however they want. We are working on filling the pages with thing we are thankful for. My daughter chose family, home, the world, heaven and Jesus~ so sweet!
Fold the whole thing up and add a title. To keep your fold out book closed you could add a ribbon or some yarn to tie it, or wrap it with a rubber band.
They are pretty neat, we think!
