Book of Lists

Books of lists are popular with children. My kids enjoy The Best Ever Kids' Book of Lists by Eugenie Allen, which lists things like the natural wonders of the world, the scariest people ever, and the grossest vegetables. Your child may enjoy making her own book of lists.

Materials

  • Plain paper
  • Pen or markers
  • Old magazines (optional)
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon

Directions

  1. Help your child make a book of lists about herself, her life, or anything else that interests her.
  2. She might want to list food she likes and dislikes, friends, favorite books, music, movies, TV shows, sports she plays or would like to play, pets she owns or would like to own, and so on.
  3. Your child can illustrate her book or, if she likes, include pictures from old magazines.
  4. When the book is complete, assemble the pages, punch holes in them, and tie them together with ribbon. Or, if you like, bind the book for your child.
