I can’t take credit for this idea – the other week when we were over at the Sawyer’s for Monday Night Football I saw a little book Rebecca made for her children after a trip to the zoo. Since Hannah and I went to the zoo the very next day, I decided to make a book for Hannah. I tried to take pictures of the pages today before taking them to get laminated (I’m either going to have them laminated and bound at Kinkos, or I’m going to get a scrapbook for them, depending on cost). Sadly the lighting is a little weird, but you can still get the idea. I think it will be fun for Hannah to have a book about herself, and I plan to make more when we do other fun stuff. The cover for the book is above, and the pages are below:
This was a really fun and cheap and not terribly time-consuming craft that assuaged my “I need to do something creative today” feeling. I think it would be fun to do with Hannah when she is a little older as a craft. I used to make books when I was little and I always loved it.
