I made my first "busy book" for my 2 year old son Christmas 2014. It was a labor of love for sure. I used a pattern I bought online and adjusted as I saw fit. Since then, I have had many people ask if I would make one for them and I decided to make a mini version that would be affordable and do-able. I have a few pages that are my go tos, but have created and invented new ones as creativity strikes. My son loves taking his book to places where he needs to be entertained. I love the book as it encourages imaginary play, it is educational, and a fun way to play without need electronics!
Here are some samples of pages I have done. I am open to creating new ideas, if you have a child who has a special interest. All books are special order and you may choose which ever pages you would like, minimum of 6. The books include a carrying cover. Cost for 6 pages is $30. Each additional 1 sided-page is $5. Double Pages are $10. Colors may vary, and can be requested.
