This paper craft shows kids that sometimes the best gift doesn't cost a penny. A promise is worth a million bucks, and it can be given to parents, grandparents, teachers, or friends.

What You'll Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Printer paper
  • Markers or colored pencils
  • Stapler

How to Make a Book of Promises:

Step 1: To make a cover for your book, fold a piece of construction paper in half. Draw a heart as shown, and cut it out. Make sure you don't cut along the fold in the paper at the top of the heart!

Step 2: Fold 3 pieces of printer paper together. Trace the heart on the top piece of paper, and cut it out.

Step 3: Write a promise on each page -- they can be serious or silly. Decorate the pages with pictures to illustrate your promise.

Decorate each page with your written promise and pictures.

­Step 4: Insert these pages into the cover, and staple the spine.

In the next paper craft, your kids will research and write their own publications. Learn how to make a Cultures of the World book in the following section.
