A Grandparent's Story Craft
A Grandparent's Story Craft is a great activity for the whole family. When you combine your drawing with a grandparent's story, you create a generational piece of artwork.
How to Make A Grandparent's Story Craft
What You'll Need:
- 3 x 5-inch Index Cards
- Construction Paper
- Craft Glue
- Markers or Colored Pencils
- Hole Punch
- Blunt Scissors
Step One: Make a book about your grandparents. Think of a question and write it on an index card. Try to come up with 8 to 10 questions. You can ask questions such as "What was your favorite toy?" or "Where did you live when you were ten?"
Step Two: Have them write the answer on the card. If your grandparents live far away, mail the cards back and forth.
Step Three: Once you have all the cards, glue each one to the bottom half of a sheet of construction paper. Draw a picture above the card to illustrate your grandparent's answer.
Step Four: Decorate a separate sheet of construction paper for the front cover.
Step Five: To bind your book, set all the pages together and punch 4 holes along the left edge. Cut a piece of yarn, thread it through the holes, and tie it in a bow.
