The True Meaning of Christmas Book
This is something I created to reinforce the true meaning of Christmas with my grandchildren. I read this simple book to the kids then each child created their own copy.
I bound the books by using a piece of card stock on the outside, and plain paper on the inside. I folded it in half to create the number of pages needed. It is stapled along the top and bound with white duct tape to cover the staples.
I cut all of the pieces out ahead of time, numbered the pages, and I gave the kids the picture and the text one page at a time. Each child had their own glue stick to glue the pieces in place.
Those children that can't read yet can use the pictures to remind them of the true meaning of Christmas.
