I followed the FANTASTIC tutorial from Skip to My Lou. I highly recommend it as it is very detailed and includes pictures for each step.
I made them in each kid's favorite color and added their initial to the front.
The notebooks were hard to find, I finally got them at Office Depot. They came in a pack of three and were just the right size!
The kids all seem to really like them, one called it his "field journal". I love giving children gifts that encourage them to use their imagination.
This might become my "go to" gift for new big brothers/sisters.
