Have the kids cut on the dotted lines to make the pages of the diary. They can put them in order and put the cover on it (fold the cover instead of cutting on the dotted line. You can staple it together or use another means of attaching the pages. The prompts on the pages are meant to be interpreted by you and their are some pages where you assign the prompt. There are some pages where kids draw a picture of something, like themselves, and then write about it. There are 18 pages all together. Hope your kids have fun with it.
