    Rubber-Band Books

    Make this book and use it to answer the journal prompts on “For Older Kids.” When you fill up all the pages, make a new one!

    1. Cut two sheets of paper in half lengthwise. Use more papers if you want a thicker book.

    2. Fold all the papers in half, punch two holes on the folded side, then pull a rubber band through the holes to make two loops on the front.

    3. Slip a paperclip into each rubber band loop. Now you’re ready to write!

    Cut out these “stickers” and use them in your journal! When you write about one of these things, tape the picture to the corner of the page. Print more at during January.

    • Sweet ’n’ Spice: 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips + 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon + tiny pinch cayenne
