Take a look
It's in a book

Craft
Make Your Own Book / Coloring Book

You will need:
One foam sheet
Coloring sheets or blank sheets on half pages
Yarn
Hold punch

Hold the foam piece landscape and cut it into half. Do the same with blank sheets of paper or print off coloring sheets (select two pages on each sheet when printing).
Punch 3 holes in all the sheets so they line up. Form a book and tie it off with yarn.
Allow the children to personalize the cover with foam stickers or pieces, feathers, sequins, shells, or anything they can stick or glue onto the foam.
