Autograph Book Kid's Craft

Friday, May 28, 2010

Summer camp is on the horizon. Make this with your child before she heads out to campfires, games, crafts canoeing, and making new friends.

You need:

  • Blue craft foam
  • Glitter Glue: Orange, Kelly, Pineapple
  • Busy Kid’s Camp Tropical Silky Cord ( I got this in the kid's craft department at Michaels. There are 4 colors of cord that you will use for all kinds of projects, good to have in your craft stash)
  • Hole punch
  • Ruler, pencil, scissors
  • Drawing paper
  • Small stick, 5-6” long
Try this:

1. Cut two 4” x 6” pieces of craft foam. Cut drawing paper to same size, as many as you wish.

2. 2. Punch two holes side by side 1” below the top and bottom edges at the left hand side of cover. Punch holes in the same places on the back cover and the pages.


3. Cut a yard of cord, any color. Hold covers and pages together. Hold the stick on the front cover between the sets of punched holes.

4. String one end of cord:

· Up through one bottom hole

· Across stick, down through closest hole

· Up through one top hole

· Across stick, down through closest hole

· Repeat

· Bring both end of cord up through holes to the front, tie in a knot

5. On the left side, draw an Orange tree trunk. Add Kelly branches. In upper right corner, draw a Pineapple sun. Add Orange words: My Summer Camp Friends.

Design the cover to reflect the kind of camp that your child is attending. Or make it a journal. Filled with her thoughts or the autographs of friends, it will be an important memento of the summer.

Glitter on!
