Parents’ Day Family Book-Making Activity

parents' day

Are you looking for a way to spend more time with your child? Parents’ Day provides the perfect opportunity. What can you, your spouse/significant other and the kids do to celebrate? Well, there are plenty of options. The family can take a day trip to a museum, go to an amusement park, take in a sporting event, have a meal together or try something artsy. If arts and crafts are the pick of the day, check out this Parents’ Day family book-making activity.

Materials

  • Family photos- This is part of the activity itself. Go through printed pictures or look at your family’s life in photos on the computer and then print them.
  • Card stock paper
  • Scissors
  • Double-stick clear tape
  • A hole punch
  • Yarn
  • Markers or crayons

How-To Steps

  1. Spend some time as a family (that is the idea on this day) and pick out family photos. Choose pics that tell a story or follow a theme such as birthdays or holidays.
  2. Stack the card stock together, using as many pieces of paper as you need for pages. Add two more- one for the cover and one for the back.
  3. Punch two or three holes on the left side of the paper stack.
  4. Bind the book together. Threats pieces of yarn through each set of holes and tie at the ends. Leave enough slack loose for the book to open.
  5. Tape one picture onto each page. Write a few words about the photos on the corresponding pages.
  6. Draw a cover. Come up with a creative title, add the date and list each family member’s name. Your child can also draw a family portrait on the front.
