Here it is, the middle of May, and our summer is pretty much booked. Baseball games, graduations, road trips and a certain little boy's birthday party – yikes! Our weekends are full. It's all a little overwhelming when I look at the calendar, but I think everything we have planned will be fun and I'm actually looking forward to all that time spent traveling in the car – the few hours here and there when I can knit or read.
Walter has always been very good in the car, but with all these road trips in our future, I wanted him to have something new to keep him entertained (so I can do all that knitting and reading). I made him a busy book, packed full of fun toddler activities.
Things to buckle, tie and button. (He'll need help with these things.) A "wallet" holding cards and keys.
Baseballs to slide from base to base. Number flaps, hiding buttons to count.
A traffic light with velcro lights to rearrange. A street with trucks to slide back and forth. A dump truck full of shapes.
A pocket full of animal pictures to flip through.
This was a really fun project for me. It certainly kept me busy! I worked on it a little bit here and a little bit there, making a page whenever I got a new idea. (I found tons of good ideas here and here.) I sure hope Walter likes it. I'm crossing my fingers for happy, fuss-free car rides all summer long...
