I decided that even first graders can have a little fun with gathering autographs of their friends and made these handmade autograph books for my son's first grade class.
I cut the paper to the size I wanted (mine are approximately 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"), punched holes in one end, and tied the pages and cover together with some yarn. I used blue and white for our school colors, and added a blue bird picture to the front for our school mascot.
Inside, I included a page for the kids to write some information about themselves. Not only will this help to prevent lost books, but it provides the kids with a writing opportunity.
They have this entire last week of school to use their books with their friends, and I included 40 pages, which gives them enough space to get autographs from all of their classmates as well as friends from other classes too!
