What child doesn’t love to have a secret hiding place? And what better hiding place than an old book? Hollowed books provide the perfect secret space to keep a small stash of money, candy, or toys. Here's an activity that'll show you and your child how to construct your own secret storage book.
For this project, you'll need a book. Many libraries or yard sales offer old hardback books that can be a great starting place for this project. Ideally, you'll want to choose a book title that people think is worth reading, but one they won’t be tempted to pick up and flip through themselves. That way the book blends in, and no one will know the hidden treasures it contains!
