Story book magic and adventures. Craft Challenge. ( Learning through play )

One of the tips I picked up from forest school was how to make a story book but not in your conventional way. And this be done with little or no cost.


1. Take a piece of A3 paper cut length ways around 3 inches long.



2. Fold it in half .

3.Fold it in half again.

4. Go back in your fold till the strip of paper is concertina

5. Take an A 5 piece if card fold it in half this is your cover.


6. Stick your folded paper into your cover , you will have 8 pages to write, draw record or do what ever you want on.

7. It could also become a mini theatre for small action figures.

The only limitation is your or your child's imagination.

My story involves a squirrel who gets caught in the rain, it rains so hard that he sees a bottle floating down the road, river or where ever .. Remember it's a story so what ever you write goes.

The squirrel then spies a message in a bottle..... Cue suspenseful music.....

What's this it's not a message but a pirate map !!!!!

Then as if by magic and because it's a story an up turned Golden Acorn pirate ship sails in.

And that's where the story stops as I ran out of time ..

Can you help me finish it ?

Can you create your own story , special book , be it a pop up or picture book etc ..?

I would love to see ..

Please tweet me or drop me an email to your link !
