* 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!)
