Your baby is growing. And now it's time to pay more and more attention to his mental development. After all, it is so important that parents are reliable conductors of the child in the way of studying the world around them. And that's why more and more devices and toys are needed that make the kid's everyday fun, small lessons, developing his logical thinking, concentration, motor skills and other such important skills. And which thing is most adapted to learning? Correctly the book! And it does not matter that until the time when the kid learns to read for so long. After all, now he is thinking, looking, and, perhaps, sometimes, everything that falls under his hands is torn. So why not wrap it up for him and not offer an original soft developing children's book that will not only entice the baby, but will also be useful to him. At present, shops offer dozens of variants of books for kids, but not all of them are of high quality. Therefore, it is best to make a soft developing book for children with their own hands. Especially for you it will be completely free, and thanks to our advice and extremely easy. Such a book will bring a lot of benefits to your baby and will also be very durable, because soft materials will allow your child to squeeze, bite and tear the book as much as necessary, and there will be no damage to it. So let's get down to making such an entertaining craft! The book will be soft with a sintepon inside. A convenient binding will allow the kid to play separately with each page. On the first page there are original marine motifs. But not simple, because this is not an ordinary page, but also a pocket. For the basis of the page, take the calico, for the pocket itself - coarse calico. It is most convenient to cover your pockets with a zipper, but you can use Velcro or large buttons. But they need to be sewn tightly. On the next page - a house. Materials for manufacturing - calico and coarse calico. From the chimney of the house smoke is poured, it is easy to make with the help of ordinary threads for knitting. Windows and doors are originally opened and closed on Velcro. behind them are hidden little beasts - a bear and a monkey. On the third page you have a magic flower. The very page we make from calico, and a flower from a multi-colored atlas. Inside of each petal, rustle the rustling materials. This is very like your baby, it turns out such an improvised rattle. The next page should be a butterfly. The body of our butterfly is soft. For this, fill it with holofayber. Sew to the page only the back, make horns of rope. Wings attach with three buttons of different colors. Now you can count butterflies with your baby, choose the same color buttons on the wings, introduce it to the concepts of small-large, symmetrical (like sewn on the wings buttons). On the next page there will be an original Christmas tree. The basis of the page is the chintz, the herringbone from the coarse calico, the appliqués are flannel, the sacks with presents are plain knitwear. Sew on your Christmas tree multi-colored buttons. On the top it is desirable to place a button with an asterisk. On the twigs, sew small rings (such fastenings for curtains can be purchased at any hardware store). Between the rings, thread the rope. Now your baby can pull on rings and a string and learn to lace. Also, attach the original animal applications here. And a bag for gifts. He, too, should be on a string. On the last page you will have a large snail. The basis of the page is calico, the body of the cochlea is made of leatherette, the mouth is simply embroidered, the shell is a fabric for curtains and eyes are buttons. Inside the shell under the cloth, place two large beads, they can be chased around. Thus, your baby will perfectly develop fine finger mechanics. What material to fill the pages is completely your choice. You can use a lining under the laminate, thin foam rubber, napkins for hot, cork, flexidosku, flexible mats. In our example, we used a thin centipon. You can also choose the material for the strings as desired. It can be for a very small child beautiful satin ribbons or cords. As a child grows up, you can replace them with slings with buckles, carbines or buckles. In order to connect the individual sheets into thetake a beautiful cord about 1 meter long. Put it on the title page on top, the middle of the cord should be at the center loop. Further, pass one end from the top to the bottom. It must pass through each eyelet on the other edge, then do it upward through the central loops. Both ends of the cord must be connected again on the title page to the center. Now, pass one end from one side of the lying cord, the other should stay in place and tie the resulting structure with a beautiful but durable bow. Well and at last a cover, we have executed it from a coarse calico witha drawing from the cartoon "38 Parrots" beloved by all children. If there are no beautiful satin ribbons for strings, and there is no binding cord, you can close the book with a conventional Velcro. That's all the soft development book for your baby is ready! With such an original craftsmanship, the child will not only have fun, but will also get a lot of useful skills. In addition, the book is very simple to make and you can easily add to it your original ideas and details.
