Stack about three pieces of paper on top of each other. Fold them in half.
At the fold cut in about 3/4" in. Continue making cuts along the fold 3/4" in.
After you are done cutting, fold one of the cut pieces forward and the next back. Continue alternating, folding one forward and the next back.
Now the children can write in their "books". If you take the time to teach
children how to make the books, the children can make the books and be an author whenever they would like.
