My Very Own Book

This craft was inspired by Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner and other books by A.A. Milne. To learn more about the books and to see all out Pooh activities, click here

While reading any of the Milne books it would be fun to have your little learner create illustrations of his or her very own to accompany the poems or stories you share together. Will you see swirling winds if you read Wind on the Hill?

As with all of our activities, the fun of this is the process and not the final project. With no direction other than “What did that poem/story make you think about?’ your young reader could fill pages with masterpiece after masterpiece, make a few make marks and regale you with a lengthy original story, or simply make a quick drawing only to come back to it days, or even weeks later. There is no right or wrong approach, only the fun of enjoying the work of a beloved author together.


Simple Staples


  • 2 sheets of colored paper or construction paper
  • 5 – 10 sheets of plain white paper
  • stapler and staples


  1. Place the white sheets of paper between the colored paper and staple down the left side.


File Folder Book


  • 1 file folder
  • 5 –10 pages of plain white paper
  • hole punch
  • ribbon, string or brads


  1. Punch 3 holes down the left side of the closed file folder. 
  2. Insert the white paper 3- 4 sheets at a time and punch through the holes already in the file folder. 
  3. Once all white sheets are in the folder with holes punched in them, tie ribbon or string through the holes to hold the pages. You can use brads instead of ribbon or string to hold the pages. If you use brads, it will be easy to take out and display masterpieces, and then add fresh paper to the book.
