Easy and Fun Party Craft- Personalized Sketchbook Journals

Personalized Journal CraftMy kids love decorating and personalizing sketchbook journals.  The big girls seem to get their researching gene from me, and love nothing more than a sketchbook for each of their favorite subjects to draw and keep notes in.   While my kids use these books for research and theme writing, I think these notebooks would be a wonderful craft for a child’s birthday party.  With frequent craft stores sales, I was able to get my supplies at 40 and 50% off!  The foam pieces are most cost-effective in large buckets, and the sticky foam sheets come in a 20 pack.  Perfect for a birthday party or classroom craft.
