Activity Books for Order

A friend of mine has asked me to make her son one of the cloth activity books like the one I made for my kids last Christmas (click here to see the "I Can Do It" Activity Book I made). Since I'll be working on this one and another one for my kids, I thought I would offer up to any of my blog followers the opportunity to have one made for you as well. The books are great gifts for children 18 months or older and can last through generations (I still have the one my mom made me). With the new page ideas I have come up sine making my last book, you have many pages to pick from to customize your book. Check out the list below and select 8 or 16 pages per book and we can also come up with a customized cover. Prices of the books will based on material costs and time
