On the 8th Day of Christmas...

Today's gift is the world's tiniest coloring book!  At least that's what I tell my class.  They love showing off these when they're done. This is another craft where you have to do some step-by-step instructions.

The kiddos need scissors and a copy of this page.

The idea is to fold it into a tiny book.  These are easy-peasy when you've done a couple, but at first they're a little tricky.  Here's a diagram to walk you through it.

If you're like me and need a step-by-step model, here's a 1 minute video I found on Youtube.  

Just remind kids to only cut on the center dotted line.  It's actually easier to fold if you cut a teeny bit (like 1/4 inch) above the center line. 

And--voila--a teeny-tiny coloring book!

P.S. We did the 2nd day of Christmas today, and like I feared, reducing the maze to 1/2 sheet was a mistake.  A few were willing to give it a try, but  most took one look at the itty-bitty tree maze and decided it was impossible.  At least they enjoyed the other side!
