This makes a change from the usual book form and can be as short
or as long as you please. In the days when I taught in a hospital
school I would give a child an old dress pattern book and a pair of
scissors so that she could cut out people to represent her family,
and write a sentence or two about everyone. One adult or child would
be mounted on each page of the zigzag book. Some children would finish
quite quickly, others would include aunts, uncles, cousins and even
neighbours. Their books would stretch right across their bed tables!
- Fold each page nearly in half. There should be an overlap of
about 2cms on one side of the fold.
- Bend this overlap back and use it to join the first folded sheet
to the next one.
- When you reach the end of the book just cut off this overlap
so that all the pages are now the same size. It is wise to decorate
the pages before you join them together. Working this way you
can stop when you have had enough!
