In honor of Earth Day, I made my boys a little felt counting book. The pictures on each page relate to an element of our earth (plants, water, animals, land, sun). And in every picture there is something to count (more on that below). Each page is half sheet of felt and all the pictures I cut out freehand. The numbers I traced and cut. I glued the pieces down with a hot glue gun and bound the pages together with a piece of yarn.
number templates are from www.coloring-crafts.com.
Now to show you the pages:
Two Birds. Three Hills.
Five Flower Petals.
Six Sun Rays.
Here are the boys reading their new book :o)
Big brother is counting the flower petals to make sure there are five.
We are spending a lot of time getting to know our earth this weekend. We planted our garden, made a trip to the zoo, set up a bird bath and took advantage of the beautiful Pacific Northwest weather we are having by going outside! Happy Earth Day!

I love this little book! I have plans for a felt busy book for my toddler but I'm nervous to actually start it… I think you've given me the motivation!

You should just go for it :o) Felt is very forgiving. I've found that you don't really have to trace or cut perfectly to make it look good! Thanks for stopping by! I'm happily following you back through GFC and on fb.

I love this! Felt books are so fun. I'm featuring you today on What I Learned Wednesday! http://weliketolearnaswego.blogspot.com/2012/05/features-and-adjusting-to-new-place.html
What a wonderful idea! I have some felt that I bought to make another type of book that requires sewing (I SO can not sew). I will totally have to use it to make this book! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
