Make an Accordion Book

June 10, 2019


Make an Accordion Book

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Pictures of different items (see #4 below)
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Marker

What You Do:

  1. Have your child cut a large piece of construction paper in lengthwise, so she has a long, horizontal strip for the book.
  2. Use a rule and pencil to mark the paper into several evenly-spaced boxes, for each of the pages.
  3. Now your child can fold the strip of paper back and forth like an accordion, by folding it on the first line, then flipping it upside down and folding it on the next line, and then repeating until the entire strip of paper is folded up.
  4. Have your child draw or cut out pictures so each one fits on a separate page of the accordion book. Consider any of the following:
    1. pictures that all begin with the same letter
    2. pictures of things to do in the summer
    3. pictures of animals
    4. Use your imagination!  
  5. Have your child glue one picture onto each page, and identify their names.
  6. Write the names under the pictures.
  7. Your child can also write a sentence about each picture.  
  8. Let the book dry completely before folding it up.

Fold up this book and keep it in your pocket for a fun activity on the go!


See directions for accordion book above, but make your own joke book. Collect jokes and riddles from your family and friends.
