Over the weekend we made some letter, number & shape "books" for Soren (though currently they're still just unbound pages). We got some sheets of foam, which we cut into 6" x 9" pieces. Then we cut the letters, etc., out of sticky-backed foam and affixed them to the cut sheets. It worked out really well and makes for a nice, tactile sort of thing for the lad. Here are the first few pages:
The concept was Tom's. We were frustrated that there don't seem to be any alphabet books out there with just one letter per page, super simple, without a bunch of other text and pictures and stuff. So, when you can't find what you want, make it yourself. I think it turned out pretty great.
Here's Soren playing with one of the pages. It looks like a V but I think it's actually my M, held upside down. It was hard to cut out those letters freehand! Hehe.
