During winter break, I’m reminded of how much fun it is to spend endless hours trapped inside with my children. This isn’t to say that I don’t love the little buggers, but c’mon. If you’re a parent, you know what I mean.
Well, once you run out of the usual fun things to do, you might try making a few mini-books. This is one craft activity that boys and girls get into with equal enthusiasm. And of course there is the additional activity of reading the books to each other after they are done!
Try this when your child has a friend or two over. It’s big fun. (plus you probably won’t be able to keep yourself from making a few too)
You don’t need the mini-book stapler shown below, but seeing this image today reminded me of this fun activity.

If you like creating little DIY booklets or zines, but have been frustrated by the short arm length in standard staplers that forces you to curl up (or worse, fold) your notebook pages in order to get a center saddle staple, this two-way stapler is a terrific little solution.
