Craft Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard (reuse the front or back of a cereal or cracker box)

  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • A glue stick
  • Photos (of your child, their school class and the teacher)

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Choose a shape for the book. Try a traditional rectangle or square shape or go with a round apple for the teacher or a heart.
  2. Draw the shape onto the cardboard.
  3. Cut the cardboard out.
  4. Repeat the drawing and cutting steps for another piece of cardboard, to make a cover and back of the book.
  5. Trace the cardboard shape onto the construction paper.
  6. Cut the paper out. Make as many pages as your child wants.
  7. Punch a hole at the top or the bottom of the cardboard and each piece of paper, in the same place.
  8. Help your child to write a special note on each page.
  9. Glue one photo to each page of the book.
  10. After the glue dries, stack the pages and tie them together with a piece of yarn that your child threads through the hole.
  11. Write a “Happy Teacher’s Day” message on the front cover.
