Fuzzy Fun Notebook

Since it's back to school time, I thought it would be neat to do an activity for the kiddos to actually use at school. I kept racking my brain for what I could do, and then my new Family Fun magazine came and I got my inspiration! We're going to make a Fuzzy Fun Notebook! Here's what you'll need for this super easy craft:

  1. Spiral-bound notebook ($.50 or less)
  2. Tacky glue ($1)
  3. Pipe cleaners ($1 at Dollar Tree)
  4. Colored paper or scrapbook paper cut and fit to size ($1)

And, here's what you need to do to make that Notebook all Fuzzy and Fun:

  1. Glue the pipe cleaners to the notebook cover.
  2. Fold the pipe cleaner ends against the top and bottom edges of the inner cover.
  3. To conceal the pipe cleaners, glue a piece of colored paper on the inside cover.
  4. Place a heavy object on top of the notebook to ensure the pipe cleaners stay flat on the notebook.

To make this even more fun, you could use your school colors and show your school pride! This one will be fun to do with the kiddos – I may even make one for myself too for my own college classes!

And, please send in those pictures! Just one more week to go and I'd love to see any of your creations!

Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
