(I made some cuter covers - see end of post) haha :)
I was looking through my filing cabinet the other day, and found this touch and feel book that I had made for my boys when they were little. I also used these for a church lesson about hands - the kids loved them! I uploaded all the pages, colored them, printed them out, and made a new one for my daughter.
I just made them on regular cardstock, and if you want them to be more durable, you could laminate the pages before you glue the extras on.
Here are the pages:
feather, and pipe cleaners,
sandpaper, and a shell,
some batting, and my daughter's handprints. (I used craft paint)
I just used hot glue to attach everything - punched holes and added rings.
I am sure there are more cute things you could add - a piece of terrycloth, satin or fur, or small rocks (if your kids are older and wouldn't choke).
You can download the pdf file here. There are 2 to a page, the top one is colored, and the bottom is black and white, so your kids or class can color it themselves!
Hope you like them!
Edit: After I posted this - I was thinking how much cuter I could have made these books! Really? Plain white pages? That is sooo not me! Oh-well, you guys go out there and make these cuter, okay?
Okay, I couldn't stand it - Here is a little nicer cover page.
