These Alphabet Books are a nice afternoon craft that doubles as a learning tool.
The construction couldn’t be simpler. First, we took a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 copier paper and made it into a small 8-page booklet.
Fold in half top to bottom and then again left to right. Crease with a brazer or silverware knife for a sharp fold. Slit the top with a scissor and then you can staple them into a pretty cover you’ve cut from scrapbook paper. Print some great big letters from your computer. Cut them out and glue them to the covers.
With the books made, the fun really begins. Take a pile of old magazines and find pictures of things that started with the letters on those book covers. Cut the pictures out and paste them into the books.

I'm a homeschool mom of six. My family has been homeschooling for about eleven years. And, each year, we've learned a little more about having fun, and spending less, while learning more. It's great to be a homeschooler!
