Paper Bag Books for EJ

Jack's Christmas gift for his little sister began with our famous paper bag books (you can read about our previous books here and here). He choose to theme three books...Colors, Animals and Shapes.


After searching through many (actually many, many, many) magazines, he did awesome collage work for the Shape book...


and also for the Color book.


But he went the extra mile and drew all the illustrations for the Animals book. And to be honest, this was his best (and quickest to finish) book of the three.


My favorite part of each book was the note he put on the back cover!


His sister was thrilled to receive them (she read them about 5 times in row after she opened her present) and Jack was so proud to give her something he made himself. It was the perfect sibling gift...low in cost and big in love!

So Sweet! (I have a stack of old magazines if you want them for crafts... i think they're "traditional home" or something. if not, i'll just recycle them)

Clever, thoughtful, and seriously heartwarming! These are definitely the gifts memories are made of. {My heart is very happy right now!}

It's neat watching the kids do nice things for each other. And it balances the times they are at each others throat. Such big hearts, I know who they got it from.

I like how you used the monkey chair to display the books. They fit nicely in the "paws".
