My second visit to Henley Beach Library was for a book making workshop session, I created for the children. We had a full booking of 20 kids, which was great! We started with a Delia book reading for inspiration, followed by a paper folding into a small book, no staples or sticky tape required! (I will post the instructions for this shortly).Then the children were free to create their own story or use my Create-a-story box.
The box has many story prompts to get started if you are stuck for ideas. I had such fun making these, and the children seemed to enjoy them too. If they didn’t like the prompt, they could go and choose another.
At the end of the workshop there were so many amazing front covers, and great starts to wonderful stories. I will let the photo collage below speak for itself. If you would like to have your full story featured, get your mum or dad to post a comment, or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well done everyone, it was fun meeting you all!
