With Summer officially here, it is time to enjoy the outdoors by planning some creative outdoor fun! But first, how about a special book that will help preserve our special adventures for all time?!

Noticeable Notebooks

Your child can turn her notebook into a creative art project!
by Dina Anastasio

What you need:

* Notebook
* Plain paper
* Crayons, markers, or watercolors
* Clear plastic sheets
* Transparent tape

1. Buy some sheets of clear plastic at an art supplies store.

2. Take out a sheet of plain paper, and some crayons, markers, or watercolors. Have your child create a picture that she thinks would make an interesting notebook cover.

3. Take out the notebook she'd like to decorate. Cut a plastic sheet so that it is one inch larger than the notebook cover on three sides.

4. Place the picture on the front of the notebook, then place the plastic on top of the picture. Align the left edge with the spine of the notebook.

5. Fold the plastic over the notebook top, bottom, and right edges and tape it to the inside cover of the notebook.
