Back-to-School Story Steps

Back-to-School Story Steps craft

Kids fall right into step with this Back-to-School activity that helps them draw and write their way into that first day. Illustrating these steps will help ease first-day jitters, too.

    To create the story steps: Fold the top of one sheet of construction paper over about 1/3 of the way and crease. Fold a second sheet about 5/6 of the way and crease. Place the second sheet inside the first and glue with a Crayola® Glue Stick along the folds.

    Think about all the things you do to prepare for school to start. For instance, do you start going to bed a little earlier each night, buy school supplies, pack your backpack, and finally, lay out your clothes?

    Write and illustrate the steps you take on the flaps with Crayola Colored Pencils. You could write the words on the outside flaps and draw the picture on the inside or vice versa. Or mix it up and do a bit of both.
