There are so many ideas for these wonderful books out there in Blogland, and most of my pages
were my own take on some of these ideas, so I thought I would add a few more today and then
perhaps one day put all the pages together as thumbnails.
so here up first is the …..
Basket of fruit ….
(I’m sorry about all the photos! I know … not very good )
the apple and pear are fastened with large press studs,
the banana with a hook and bar
and the lemon fastened with velcro ……
Undo them all and put them back into the basket!
(I did think after that a little purse could have been attached in the basket with money to buy the fruit)
The Overalls …..
a tape measure in the top pocket,
a tractor picture hiding in a secret pocket
and a wallet with press studs to fasten, and buttons to slide up and down, hides in the front muff pocket.
Apparently the tape measure is a huge success :0)
these pages encourage fine motor skills
These next two pages go together …..
an I-Spy page and “Can you find?“
These were very popular pages right from day one,
encourages simple observation, language development and adult participation
other pages were more basic …. zips, weaving, and an abacus.
I am quite happy if anyone wants to use any of my ideas to make their own book.
All in all it takes a huge amount of time, costs quite a lot of money …..
BUT the end of the story is …..
IT WAS WORTH IT ALL :0)
I hope you think so too!
Bye for now XX
