1st birthday: activity books (diy)

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetLast week, I explained how I wanted to create a photo booth for Remy’s upcoming party as entertainment for the adults. Today, I’m going to show you what I made to ensure the children at the party wouldn’t get bored either. Also, let’s face it, adults can have fun with this DIY as well!

screen-shot-2017-02-07-at-11-15-48-amscreen-shot-2017-02-07-at-11-15-29-amI created these activity books in Microsoft Word. After going online and finding clip art from the film Moonrise Kingdom, I saved the images that I thought would look best. I also made sure that they were in black and white, which makes colouring them in much easier. Then I opened a Word document, flipped the direction of the page to a landscape rather than a portrait, then added the images.

I’m going to put them in a crate on a table at the party, and put a mason jar of crayons beside them. I know that my nieces are obsessed with colouring, so I think that they will go over well with the older children there.

Happy Monday, all!
