I made for the Frog Princess this year was
a simple set of blank books.
I don't know of a single kid who doesn't like to draw and write in their own books.
She loves making up stories and illustrating mini diaries, journals, etc.
I just stapled office paper together with some leftover
scrap-booking paper to make the covers.
By making them in assorted sizes and shapes
I was able to re-use more scraps and give her more artistic freedom.
This would be such a simple birthday gift
to make for a special child in your life.
Just think what Eric Carle or Tomie DePaolo would have done with these?
