These animal cards were super easy to make, and cheap. Adelle hasn't had a chance to play with them yet, but I can already guess that the cat will be her favorite.
What you need to make these:
paper hole punch.
- First find some coloring book pages online that you like. I just googled free coloring book pages and a ton of stuff came up.
- After you've selected your pages print them out on card stock. I found some cheap stuff at walmart, $3 for a huge pack of card stock. It's worth it to get the heavy paper just because regular paper is too thin and flimsy.
- cut your shape out and paper punch
- to make the string I took yarn, and threaded the end through a large button to serve as the knot. next take a little bit of tape and tape and roll it around the other end to give it stiffness. If you want to you can add a second piece of tape below the edge just to make a little more finger room for your toddler.
