My Fun Book - 4 Pages...WIP

Work in progress...

 

Eight pages (or four front-to-back pages) are in the felt activity book now.

 

"My Fun Book" is an activity book for children and/or adults with memory-loss issues.

 

*~*~*~*~*

 

I started making a felt activity book for my daughters as a way to pass time in the car and/or longer driving trips.

 

When I went to Pella (Iowa) with my daughters and parents in late-April, I showed my parents the pages I had completed.

 

My dad has been recently diagnosed with middle-stage Alzheimer's Disease. He had difficulty with some of the pages.

 

It made me think that, perhaps, something along this line might be beneficial to him and/or others with the disease.

 

Once I'm done, I'm going to make a pattern of the entire activity book and offer it through my Etsy shop. In that way, people can create their own books based on the age and needs of the children or adults who would be using the book.
