Crafty Thursday Book In A Bag

Get out those glue sticks, it's time for a fun craft! I wanted to a fun way to teach a lesson in our religion class but these are awesome for anything at all!
What you need:
1. Paper lunch bags (Ours needed 16 pages, so we used 4 paper bags)
2. Glue Stick
3. Scissors
4. Stapler
5. Assorted paper cut into squares to fit on pages
6. Tabs (optional, for pulling pages out of the sleeves)
Once your paper squares are cut out, move on to the folding your bags in half to make the book. Take your scissors and carefully trip off the bottom tip of the lunch bags, so that you have more openings to use as tabs.
Take your stapler and staple the center of the book, so that all pages stay in place. I carefully folded the pages in, so my stapler would fit better. 
Glue down the squares on each page and place sheets in the pockets, put a tab on if you wish to make them easier to pull out. We just used square task stickers folded up.
You are now ready to design your book! This is so much better than those pre-made books as your kids get to have a hand in creating them as well.
Ours were used for the 15 Stations of the Cross and we created them while listening to the Passion on CD. There are millions of things you could do with your book, please share! We plan on making these books for many other things we are learning!
Enjoy every minute my friends!
