Henry's Busy Book

I know it's been a while since I've posted but things have been crazy busy with the business and it seems like blogging has been last on the list this past year.

I wanted to share the latest project that I made for my one year old Grandson.  It's a busy book!
There are a few of the pages that are a little advanced for a one year old, but I wanted him to grow into the book and have it last several years.

This was a time-consuming project, taking almost a month to complete but I wasn't in any rush so it was a lot of fun to work on.

The sunshine circle is made with crinkle fabric and sensory ribbon tags.

The I Spy page is a fabric magnifying glass with lots of little trinkets to catch your attention.
Henry's favourite thing to do right now is play peek-a-boo so this is his favourite page as he can put his hands inside the mittens!
A little too young for this page but he will have fun matching the shapes in the future.  Each vinyl shape has velcro attached to the back to secure it to the opposite shape page.
Counting beads are so much fun!
This little octopus has sensory fur balls attached
The finger puppets are easily removed for play.
The button maze is lots of fun!
Each of the blue squares works on fine motor skills.  Velcro, Snap, Button and Magnet and a little zipper for added fun.  Beads spell his name and slide along the top.
   Unzip the tent to see the 3 little bears inside.
Learning to tell time with movable clock hands.
Henry's favorite dinosaur with sensory tags.
Learning to tie.
Removable fish in a clear plastic fish bowl.
Lift the flaps to see your favourite animal.  Pictures can be changed as they are behind plastic fabric and easily slide out.
Having fun with buckles and clips.
Let's learn to buckle our overalls.
I had so much fun making this Busy Book and I hope he enjoys it for years to come.
