This holiday season, let your child illustrate a favorite family story as a gift for one of the superheroes in his life.
What you’ll need
- 3 to 5 sheets of 8 1/2- by 11-inch white
- card stock
- 9 1/2- by 6-inch piece of colored card stock
- 3- by 2-inch piece of cardboard
- Colored pencils
How to make it
Fold a sheet of white card stock in half lengthwise, then fold it in half again, short side to short side, and cut along this fold. Repeat with the other sheets to make as many pages as you like.
For the cover, fold the colored card stock in half, short side to short side. Insert the white pages between the covers and staple them along the spine.
Use the cardboard to trace 2 illustration panels per page. Have your child draw in the panels, then title and decorate the front of the book.
