DIY Doodle Books

Pin It
Have you ever been invited to a student's birthday party and haven't been sure about what to get them?  Here is a fun and easy to make Doodle Book!

Items to Gather:

1.  First, design a cute cover with clipart and the child's name.  Print it out in color on the white card stock. 
2.  Next, use your comb binding machine to punch the holes in all the paper.

3.  I used a report cover for the front, so I also needed to punch holes in that.  You can choose to laminate your cover if you want.  You would do this before you punched the holes in it.
4.  Insert your binding comb into the machine and gently thread all the papers into the comb.
5.  Close the comb and wrap up the gift!

Other Tips/Suggestions:

I bought a set of markers to add to the gift, but you can pair it with a set of cute erasers, crayons, colored pencils, what ever!  Kids will  love that their name is on it and it's bound so professionally.  They will also love to draw and write all over it!

  1. I made doodle books for my students. They are allowed to doodle during our afternoon read aloud time and live for it!

    1. Great idea to make them for your whole class!

  2. What a fantastic idea! I never know what to get a student, but I always try to go to parties that I am invited to! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Second Grade is Out of This World

    1. I just made one this morning actually for a colleague who's kindergarten neighbor is turning 6 today. My colleague helped me design the cover with a princess and a hot pink cat. Needless to say, the little girl was in LOVE! :)
