diy chipboard preschool number book

Pin It
i bought this scalloped-edge cHiPBoaRD bOOk about a year ago for $1 at a craft store. it has sat in my craft cabinet ever since.  also in there gathering dust was a pack of $1 number flashcards. 
i had a massive headache and just needed some good aRT tHeRaPY...

throw them together with some glue, markers,
                          and quality moMMa-buDDy aRt tiME and this is what you get.






Bear loves the book and has been "reading" it to whoever will listen. 
                          here's the finished product:

I love this and that you needed this to get rid of your headache. I can get behind the idea of art therapy. Fabulous!

Aww! Very cute idea! And I love seeing your little boy doing crafts! People keep asking me what I'm going to do with my son because I'm so into art & crafting, but I don't see why a boy can't be! They can be just as creative and have fun with that stuff too!

how fun - I love making books with my girls and they adore having their very own works of art to read over and over again! This was a cute lil number book and what a great keepsake to save and look back on later! :)
