Make your own color/counting book

Have you ever considered making your own book for your baby? Most people would say “no” to this question. (and until this post I would have said no too!) It’s really easy and fun to do, plus it’s special because YOU made it! It requires little money too! BONUS!

Here is all you need:

  • a camera
  • a photo book

To make your own counting book you simply find things around the house and lay them out and snap a photo.

Once you are done with that (and you can go up as high as you want) you simply upload your photos to a photo editing site like: Picnik and add words to it.

Print the photos and add them to a photo book. I got mine at the dollar store! Score!

Making a color book is a little more work because you have to find multiple things for each color and so many things come in different shades of a similar color.

You can even make your own “I Spy” book!  Simply put a bunch of stuff together, snap the photo then write a list of what they are suppose to find in the photo!
