Colorful Back to School Notebooks

by jenni on August 11, 2010


Now that it is August, parents all over the country are having to think about kids going back to school. This of course means thinking about buying school supplies that your kids will like and want to take to school. This is an easy way to make sure your kids will like their school supplies as well as something that they can do themselves when they need new notebooks for school.

Materials Needed:

  • Notebooks
  • Tacky Glue
  • Pipe Cleaners, whichever colors you want
  • Constructions Paper


  1. Spruce up a plain spiral bound notebook with bold stripes by using tacky glue to stick pipe cleaners (the extra wide, fuzzy type work especially well) onto the cover.
  2. Fold the pipe cleaner ends against the top and bottom edges of the inner cover, then conceal them with a glued-on sheet of colored paper on the inside of the cover.
