One of the characteristics of the FunLab Summer Camp is the biweekly cooking class during which the kids prepare their own lunch with the help of our artisinal chef, Sonia. Obviously, the kids want to bring the recipes created during the class home to share with Mom and Dad:). I decided that we needed to make a special cookbook where our little chefs could store their summer cooking memories. Look how cute a our accordian Recipe Book is – just think that we use recycled materials that we already had on hand!!
Step 2: Use your scrap book paper or construction paper to cut out and even number of the same sized blocks. These blocks of colored paper will serve as the pages of the book. I had lots of random scraps of paper including left overs from Christmas, Easter, vairous birthdayd and Valentine’s Day. Our resulting cook book is a fun mix of all the different holidays!
Step 5: Once you have added the number of pages that you want to your accordian book, you can start to add some fun details. Use scraps of colorful paper and decorative scissors to cut out shapes and glue into the book!
