Creating a friendship book for primary school

A friendship book with all your memories

These are questions that you answered in your best friend's friendship book. But a magazine can also be made in the form of a friendship's book. The friendship book is structured. By agreeing on the layout of the pages, you ensure one coherent whole.

A structured friendship book

You can let each student (with or without parental help) create their own page. Or assign parents a page to fill with text and photos of their child. By having each child answer a few questions, the idea of a structured friendship book is created.

Make use of templates

It is useful to agree on the design of the page(s) in advance. It is possible to use templates from Jilster's makerspace. These are pages that are partly pre-filled. There are templates that are formatted in the style of the friendship book. But of course you can also create your own template and use that as a basis.
