Personalized Counting Book for Your Toddler
One of the best ways to get young children to learn to count is by having them count everday objects. So I created a counting book for my daughter using her toys.
You will need:
- phone or camera for picture
- computer and printer
- publishing or word processing program ( I used PowerPoint)
- photo paper
- cold laminator
- hole puncher
- binder ring
- sharp scissors
Now to Create
Write a list with numbers 1 – 10. Go through your child’s toys and write down items you have for each number (for example I had 2 dolls and 4 ducks).
Take a picture a picture of each number of toys.
Create the pages of the book by writing the number and name of item under each picture. I used Powerpoint to create a slide for each number. You can use any word processing or publishing program.
Make a title page with their picture on it.
I also added a review counting page at the end.
When you are happy with how the pages look, print on photo paper. I printed 4 slides per page so I only needed 3 pages of photo paper.
Wait for ink to dry then laminate the photo paper so it’s sturdy for little hands.
Punch a hole in the upper left corner.
Put all the pages on the binder ring and your done!
