Hi Brien, 

makingbooks.com  has years worth of ideas for you. 
Susan is so generous, there is a lot of free information on the web site. 
In addition to the free projects on the site, 
note the tips section under the "for teachers" tab,
plus sources for supplies, and annotated bibliography.
Her publications are worth buying - and it is "cyber Monday". 

Thanks for teaching kids how to make books

Hello everyone,

Last summer, our library offered summer workshops for kids ages 6+. Over the course of 5 days for about 2 hours a day, we made Japanese stab bindings, paste papers, small accordion bindings, and even tiny pamphlet stitched books. Many of the parents have talked to me about wanting to do another bookbinding camp next summer. I'd hate to keep offering the same thing over again, and I know that as a kid I would've hated to take the same thing over again. Does anyone know any other kid-friendly book structures?
