* Summer Boredom Buster: Make Your Own Joke Book!

A perfect boredom buster for summer break...
let your kids be authors and illustrators of their own Joke Book.

"E" (age 7) made this one for her Grammy Bev's birthday.
Grammy Bev has an extensive Penguin collection so... we made her a Penguin joke book.

A few jokes were found online; "E" wrote the rest of them. 
(I love her jokes and her drawings so I had to share)

After writing down the jokes, we carefully typed them 
on the computer and printed them on card stock.

Then, we trimmed the card stock into small pages (3"x5")
and "E" carefully illustrated each joke with pen and colored in  with colored pencils.

We bound the whole thing with  rainbow yarn.

 Little Sister, "C" (age 3) made a page too!

It was a big hit (and a favorite birthday gift!)

I love the joke book idea! My 11 yo son is the comedian in the family. I think he would like making this. Thanks for the idea!

My 7year old has just 'discovered' jokes and will love this idea. I'm working on teaching her the idea that a joke loses it's funniness after about 27 tellings!
P.S. The Play Academy linky is up at NurtureStore today - I love it if you would come and share an idea.

Adorable. What a wonderful keepsake for a loved one. She did a great job and the little one adding a picture- too cute.
