Today in the Frugal household, we have one ill (and whingey) five year old, one very energetic eight year old, one very tired mummy and one absent daddy.
Trying to find something to keep us all occupied and happy was a bit of a challenge this morning but we managed a happy hour or so making some homemade books. All you need for this is a sheet of A4 paper, some colouring pens and a pair of scissors so it was ideal for us today as we couldn’t be bothered with any faffing about.
We followed the instructions in the video below to make the book – it literally takes a minute to do and is really simple. I found it easier to pause the video after each fold for the first book but after that I didn’t even need to refer to it.
We had loads of fun making our books and ended up making a springtime book, all about the animals and flowers that make an appearance at Springtime:
We made a Dinosaur book, all about, erm dinosaurs:
And finally, we made a book about all of the things we’d like to do over the half term holidays:
So, we’ve managed to fill a whole hour up now, only another six more to go till bedtime….
