My Spring Book

Introduction: Spring is a great time to go outside and have kids explore the world as it grows before their eyes. Have them jot down some cool things they see when they go out and explore! Introducing kids to making books will also help them get excited about them and provides a great practice for creative writing.

Making the book:

The book can be as long as you want 2-5 pages or even 6-10! Have the kids fill the pages of what reminds them of spring, activities to do in the spring, or even what they see when they go outside. Question pages are fun too there are many plants to explore in the spring and how the plants grow or their basic biology. You could even do a page dedicated to the birds flying around.

Once the pages are full and in the desired order hole punch and tie them together with strong or yarn or if you choose to you can staple them together too.

Enjoy your books!

This isn’t just for spring!

Having kids make their own books is a good way to have them explore their creative side and different seasons of the year. You can make different books for summer, fall, and winter too.

Here are some other sites that have similar activities.
