The Aztecs made stories by carving pictures into bark and leather. Make your codex by drawing a few pictures to tell your own story!

How We Did It

Aztec Codex
We started out with one piece of cardstock, cut into fourths... but Madeleine's story about her two dogs could not be contained in four pictures!

So she added a bit more. She drew her pictures first in pencil, then colored them.

When she had her story complete, I showed her how to leave a little bit of space between her pages, for folding,

and we taped them together, one after the other.

Now she has a new kind of book to read to her friends and family!
