This fun back to school craft will have students engaged on their first day of school!  This also makes a thoughtful keepsake book of their first day or first week at school that parents & students will love for years to come.

This back to school activity has everything you need to make a cute pencil craft or keepsake book. Simply, print off the pages you need and turn them into a book by stapling them to a 9"x12" piece of yellow construction paper. This download now also includes templates to create a mini 9"x6" pencil craft!

What's included?
