So.. The lovely Mrs Mactivity and I came up with this All About Me Mini Book Printable idea back in the summer. We thought it would be a perfect little craft for “Back to School”. A great ice breaker at the beginning of the year. This is a book made from one sheet of paper and NO GLUE. Only a little cutting required.
I confess. I have been late sharing it with everyone… but it made me think.. it is PERFECT for as a New Year’s Eve activity too!! Add the year you are ending.. and see how things change a year on! So if you are you looking for New Year’s Eve Countdown Activities, be sure to add this fab booklet!

How to assemble your All About Me Mini Book
Cut out your printable – remove the white boarder. Cut as neatly as you can.
These books are really easy to make, but require a number of folds, that create creases which will later fold into your book.
Fold your paper in half length wise. Open it.
Fold in half width wise. Fold up the bottom half again.
Now it is time to make your cut.
Unfold the bottom half. Cut down the dotted line.
Unfold completely. Refold along it the length.
Push the sides in and close up your book. Finished.
