We made this All About Me book in early January this year as a Preschool project.We were just after a long holiday in Sri Lanka to spend time with kid’s grandparents.We started this year with back to school shopping in Malaysia.We ended 2017 with happy memories and kid was eagerly waiting to start his new preschool term as a kindergartner.
My kid’s preschool teacher asked to prepare an ‘All About Me book’ as part of their learning series. Always these DIY projects are challenging for me. Once we did a paper lantern decoration project for last year Lantern Festival.It was a good DIY project for us to bond.We also made a paper plate toucan when teacher asked to create a craft using paper plates.
As a mom I try to help my kid with ideas while allowing him to do most of his projects alone. Therefore I tried finding an idea for his All About Me book with things he can do alone.
At the beginning of this year, he was 4 years old and he just started writing without help. Therefore we used pages about him with his handwriting.As he cannot write much,I used simple questions about him which answers are easy to write.
I printed few headings for the book to make it easier for the kid.
Below are some pages from this All About Me booklet which was fun in making. It was a great bonding time for both of us.
At the end of the book, we also inserted few pages to show my kid’s interest and ability to arts and crafts.
If you love to do DIY and art crafts with your kids, try such All About Me book. It is interesting and exciting way to spend time together.
