Make a Mini Science Journal Booklet from one sheet of paper

Have you ever tried making tiny notebooks?  My eldest is currently obsessed with pocket-sized books.  He loves using them to doodle, jot down ideas, or record stories.  Today we're doing a STEAM themed craft and turning a single white sheet of computer paper into a cute science journal.  It's the perfect place for young scientists to jot down observations, hypotheses, and ideas for experiments.

Let's get making!

The idea for today's post was inspired by this Zoey and Sassafras book.  We received a copy to read and LOVED it.  The whole series is really fun and does a great job of incorporating scientific ideas and magic into an easy-to-read chapter book.
