Gift for My Daughter's 7th Birthday

One of my daughters recently turned 7, and had seen an ad in the Walmart flyer for a notebook that she really wanted. Um, it was $2.50 for a little 70 sheet notebook, and well, I would have gotten it, but it turns out they were all out when we had the money for it anyway. Soooo, I had kept the sales flyer, and decided to draw it for her instead. The picture on the flyer was really tiny, but this is how it turned out:

I took the drawing I had made & glued it to a plain notebook and taped around the edges with clear, packaging tape:

Inside front cover of the notebook:

To make it even more special, I cut out & glued on pretty pictures I thought my daughter would like, on the inside & back covers of her notebook:

She said it was even more special because I had made it, which was what I was hoping for!

  3. Thank you, Patrizia! Yes, most of the children are very creative and seem to be talented in this area as well, though I don't know what is "normal" at their ages.
