Make a Magazine Comic Book 

This activity involves reading, writing and a lot of creativity! Start by cutting a series of pictures out of a magazine or newspaper.  Paste the pictures to construction paper, leaving space for your child to insert dialogue or a story. Then hand the paper over to your kiddo and encourage them to fill in the blanks to accompany the images. See what they can come up with — and ten share it with us by sending in photos of their completed project.
