So my husband is going to Maryland for job training for six weeks. While he is gone my son and I are going to make a felt car mat. I took him to buy felt yesterday, which Joanns has on sale right now for $2.99 a yard, btw. He is so excited to help me make this. We drew out an outline today and he told me a bunch of places he wants to include on it, including some of his favorite places, both grandparents houses, the barn and McDonalds. We are so excited to start this. I got the idea from Oopsey Daisy.
Also while the husband is away, I'm going to try and make 2 quiet books. One for my son with boy themes and one for my daughter with girl themes. These are the pages I've been thinking about....
1. My name is...
~This page will have the letters to his name that he can snap on and off to learn to spell it.~
2. Ice Cream page
~This will be a buildable ice-cream cone with an ice cream truck~
3. Baseball Glove
~He will be able to put his hand in this glove~
~Learning to tie his shoes~
5. Pair of Pants
~Learn to buckle a belt~
~will have animal finger puppets
~Planting vegetables underground~
~one side will have the mailbox that opens, the other will have a paper pad and crayons to write letters~
~This will have beads that they can count and then velcro the right number next to it.~
12-13. Traffic Light and Road Map
~Matching colors on the traffice light and a fun road with a car to drive~
~Learning to button on the balloon tops~
15. Tic Tac Toe
~play mat for tic tac toe~
16. Family Tree
~Will have pictures of our family to put on the leaves~
*this is the boy one, Graycies will be a little different*
I will try and post pictures and a tutorial of each page that I make.
