Back to School Craft: Decorate a Custom Journal Cover

Toddler Activities, Crafts ; Back to School Custom Journal Cover

Back to School time!

Let your little ones help to create a one-of-a-kind journal for that older sibling or special relative. Or create your own journal to write down all those special sayings that make you chuckle! It’s really easy to make one of these and your child will have so much fun.

All you need is to get a sheet of stiff white felt that has adhesive on one side. ( I found mine at Michaels). Then trace the outline of the cover of a simple composition book on the backing. (with all the Back to School Specials you can get one of these composition books for under a dollar!)

Now turn it over to the felt side and let your child paint with tempura paint on the felt side, or with markers to make a special picture or design.  When she is done with her masterpiece let it dry.

Then cut on the outline you drew on the backing and then remove the backing to stick it to the front of the composition book. Beautiful! Back to School : Custom Journal Cover

Then you can add some embellishments like I did if you want. (Please be careful with little ones so that they don’t try to put the embellishments in their mouths.)

Supplies Needed:

 – stiff felt with adhesive backing ( white)
 – tempura paint with paint brush or sponge, or markers
 – pen to trace outline
 – scissors to cut
 – embellishments ( purchase a pack of cute felts, or make your own!)

  4. The Umrah is also termed as Minor-pilgrimage and is highly recommended for those who have the resources to undertake the hard journey. After the Saee the Muslims had to cut their heads or completely shave their heads so that Umrah could be completed. After the halq (cutting of Hair) the Umrah is completed and the Muslims are freed from Ihram. Many people visit Makkah in Ramadan as the blessings of Umrah in Ramadan are equal to hajj. 2106 best Ramadan Umrah Packages are being booked from all around the world.
