Sara of Party Perfect is a former art director for Martha Stewart’s Babies and Kids magazines. In this weekend project, Sara made a baby book for her son Gram by taking photos of objects and spelling out the words with wooden letters. She then took all the photos into iPhoto and had her own book made! Sara writes:
Last week we bought my son a ‘first words’ book. It had some common words like ‘car’ and ‘ball’- but the car didn’t look like ours and the neon orange soccer ball didn’t look like any we owned. So I thought it might be nice to create a first words book exclusively for him, using objects that were more familiar to him and focusing on words that he was either already trying to grasp (ball, momma) or words that would be helpful to me (milk, water).
You can even take this great concept further and make simple flash cards for your baby by printing it on cardstock from your printer at home. [ via AT ohdeedoh ]
