Sensory baby book

I don't know a baby who doesn't enjoy a touch and feel book, even toddlers seem to be drawn to them and what a special keepsake for a baby to have forever. Homemade books are common in Montessori schools and Tara and i made this one for the new arrival that we wanted to share....

Each page has a familiar face on it and with the use of puffy pens some words that can be felt for a tactile experience
The pages are made with foam for a soft touch book

Photos were laminated before placing on so they last the dribble and pulling hands of a teething bub

Our "squishy" is made with the slime featured in my Halloween blog but this batch was red for a good visual

Even daddy got a mention

Used a scourer for spiky

Don't forget to add your family pets, they are always the favourites

Rough sandpaper. Simple wording for a toddler to be able to read to a sibling and so special this book can be kept forever
