I don’t even know what the page numbers are for these pages… losing track! But, I do know that I only have two more to go and I will be finished! My son’s book will have two “special” pages just for him, which I will show with the final two that all the books have. Then I just have to put them together and take my final pictures! So exciting… On the the descriptions of these pages.
Camping: I think this page is an original design… (please correct me if I am wrong!). I saw other pages with tee pees, but were a little different. I found the great glow-in-the-dark star buttons when I was shopping and had to think of a way to use them on a page. I decided to make a camping page with flaps to find/count the stars. I also made a tent with zipper and a surprise inside!
This page is also an original, made with my train-obsessed son in mind! I did see a page (somewhere) that had a balloon going up and down. I took that basic idea and turned it into a train on a track. The train can go up and down following the ribbon holding it in place. The train is double layer felt with the ribbon running through a casing in the middle.
I saw this page in a quiet book for sale, but have not seen it in a homemade one. So easy! My mom had made something similar for my niece out of a big block of wood, but this is the flat version. The mouse can go in and out in any order, through the loops sewn on the cheese. I put 10 loops on my cheese, but could easily have put more or less. A good lacing activity for kids two little to actually lace a shoe.
The simple, but popular write/color page and mail box to keep them in. The left side is stocked with a crayon and paper, and the mailbox is hollow.
