Easy School Friends Book

Have fun making a book that all of your friends will want to be the first to sign.


  • Construction paper – red, yellow, blue, white

  • Alphabet stencil

  • Rubber band

  • Black marker

  • Ruler

  • Pencil

  • Scissors

  • Glue


  • Cut the following pieces: Two, 6” x 6” squares of red paper
    Two, 7” x 1-1/2” pieces of yellow paper
    6” x 2½” piece of blue paper (use paper edgers along one 6” edge)
    Enough 6” x 6” pieces of white paper for all your friends

  • Use the alphabet stencil and black marker to letter the words, “School Friends” on the yellow strips of paper. Glue the strips at an angle across one piece of red paper. Then trim so that the ends are even with the edges.

  • Ask your friends to write their name and glue a small school photo of themselves on one side of a white sheet of paper. They can also add a personal note to you, or any other information you would like to have.

Note: You may need to make the blue strip wider and use a larger rubber band if you have lots of pages for your book.

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!
