Easter Coupon Booklets Tutorial

 

If you’re scrambling for some sweet additions to your kids Easter baskets, look no further. I have a meaningful idea you can quickly and easily make that costs zero $.  As a bonus, this has no candy either! Now, I love coupons–clipping them, using them, researching them online, and so on. One of my favorite sites that I visit regularly is thefrugalgirls.com. This past week they had printable Easter coupons for kids. What a grand idea! I printed out a few sheets and then came up with some of my own more personalized ones that I typed up and printed out.

For some of the ones I made up I even drew a little picture or used a scrapbooking sticker to go along with it. After that, all I did was cut out a rectangle of cardstock slightly larger than the coupons and added each child’s name to the front. I used printed cardstock that suited each of their personalities and punched two holes along the side of each coupon and cardstock cover.

To wrap things up, I  laced two ribbons through those holes to “bind” their coupon books. Now they’re waiting for the Easter bunny (aka Mom) to put them into their baskets tonight.

5 coupon booklets, each one a bit different.
Each kids booklet is a bit different. Like I said, I put together coupons for each one that I know they would appreciate. For example, in my oldest son’s book, I have one for staying up 30 minutes later, 1 for a game of catch, and 1 for an ice cream date with Mom or Dad. In my daughter’s book I have 1 for a manicure or pedicure (done by Mommy), something the boys definitely would NOT be into. Here’s a list of some other ideas:
*1 batch of homemade cookies, their choice
*1 picnic at the park
*Movie night-they pick movie of choice & popcorn
*1 extra bedtime story
*Game night-they choose game
*Pool pass
*30 extra minutes of TV time
