Making a book for kids requires a few materials – the perfect ingredients to happiness which include:
A story or may be not – Your child would have something in mind, something that they love dictating to you about day in and day out. Make a book for kids using the same story they love. If they don’t have a story in mind you could let them write down the many joys of their last holiday. Writing about previous holidays is very common and it stores fond memories for years to come. Moreover, you would also have a lot of pictures that you could use.
Paper – You could either use paper or card sheet to write your story or draw childish yet amazing pictures. Kids don’t fancy neat pictures as adults; instead, they love their pictures to look messy, yet enjoyable. So let their creative mind roam free. If your kids are writing about holidays they could always draw them or you could even use pictures already taken.
A hard cover material – You could either wrap up an old cardboard piece with card-sheet or any other form of thick paper available at home. Now that the hard cover is prepared, let your children think of a creative title – you could help them out with the title. Once done, let them decorate the outer cover as per their wish.
Now comes the best part, the actual content – When you make a book for kids with their help there are going to be more pages of drawings/pictures rather than content. Therefore, don’t be surprised when each picture just has two to three sentences as a description. Let the kids come up with the wordings for the story line (they already have one in mind as they’ve drawn pictures representing them). If your book is about the holidays they’ll have lots to write about right from the minute you left home to the second you returned.
