* Homemade Search and Find, Walter Wick Inspired I Spy Book
Well, Christmas is over and so is New Year's Eve
so in our house that means that it is time for Grandpa's Birthday.
My dad is tricky to shop for and having his birthday a week after Christmas
always makes it extra tricky! Fortunately, he loves homemade gifts
and he loves to do I Spy challenges and books with the girls.
So... we made him his own, homemade "I Spy" book this year!
I'm sorry the photos are so dark, it's been rainy and cloudy here all afternoon.
First, the girls set up some Walter Wick inspired
"I Spy" scenes with their toys in the playroom
and we took photographs.
I printed out 8" x 10" photos of each scene.
Then, "E" wrote out the poems and challenges for each photograph.
We slid the photographs and handwritten challenges into some
clear page protectors and tied the whole thing together with some rainbow yarn.
"C" made him a photo and page with all of her stuffed kitties
but I can't show the page because she wrote her name all over it!
Trust me, it's very pink, very kitty, and very cute.
Can't wait to surprise him tomorrow with his homemade book!
Thank you to everyone who left a comment on the Walter Wick, "I Spy"
book giveaway. I'll be contacting the two winners via email!
pink and green mama, MaryLea
