A few months ago while I was cleaning out our crawl space I came across one of Dominic's old Elmo dolls. Its one of those ones that you program with your computer so that Elmo knows your name and some of your favorite things like your favorite animal, favorite foods, etc. So after I cleaned him up a little I reprogrammed the doll to suite Lucas.... He instantly fell in love with it and now carries his "melmo" EVERYWHERE! Now if only I could get him to sit down and watch an Elmo video once in awhile. Not that I want him to be one of those kids that wants to sit in front of the TV... I just think it would be nice if he would watch just long enough for me to vacuum without having to do this!!
Anyways getting back to topic, I have been wanting make a tot book ever since seeing all the ones that Carisa made over on her blog 1+1+1=1. So I took the time that was supposed to be spent packing : ) and made my very first tot book!!
Here is a look at how it turned out.....
In the top left corner is a mini colouring book, in the bottom left corner is an accordion fold counting book with numbers 1 - 10. In the top right corner is a mini book naming some of the sesame street characters, and in the bottom right corner is an Elmo size sequencing set. In the middle is shapes, and it says "help Elmo find the different shapes"
Here is a look inside the mini colouring book.
and the mini sesame street friends book.
Here is the Elmo size sequence set.
Lucas loves his new tot book! Especially the Elmo sequencing... he cant sequence them yet but he really likes putting them in and out of their pouch.
I have every intention of sharing this tot book I just have a few small kinks to straighten out first, so be sure to check back soon!
