Wednesday’s School Craft

Colonial children made copy books by sewing pieces of paper together. They used these to practice their handwriting. Once they were old enough to write, they would keep diaries. We made some by gluing some fabric to a composition book. Then they used foam stickers to decorate them. These will be their notebooks for church. Photobucket
