Counting Book

Mackenzie is my little smartie pants.
She soaks up everything and learns things so easily.
Recently she learned how to count to 10.

However...
being able to recognize numbers
and count objects in front of her
is still a work in progress.

So I decided to make her a little counting book.

I took pictures of things she sees around our house everyday,
then added some numbers to the pictures with Picasa,
printed them out,
stuck them in a cheapie photo album and

Tada!

A personalized, fun and cute learning tool that Mackenzie loves.

Kristin, this is pretty rad.

I love this idea. I think I will try it with my first grader's site words... she loves pretty things but flash cards - not so much. It would also make a great baby gift if you made it on chip board.

Found you through Tip Junkie. This is cute! As an aunt, I might have to make one of these for my niece. You could also do an alphabet one, too.
