This page simply has a pair of pre-made mittens stitched down. He can put his hands inside.
A felt barn, with animal finger puppets. Pattern for the barn came from serving-pink-lemonade.com and the finger puppets was from jocelynandjason.blogspot.com
This page is a colour-matching game. The balloons are removable and held in place with velcro.
This is a 'cause and effect' page. He can pull on a ribbon and see it move somewhere else on the page.
This is the final page. I had some dinosaur-printed fabric so I used some as an applique. There is a zippered pocket on the page which holds the felt transportation pieces. I just looked around on the internet for line drawings and used those for the designs.
There you have it - an activity book that I had a
great deal of fun creating and hope my grandson has
fun playing with it.
Last night we watched my favourite Christmas program - the old original Boris Karloff version of 'The Grinch' and so today's quote is from the Grinch himself.... "Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps....means a little bit more" Wise words!
