A while ago, I was at my favorite home decor outlet rummaging through the clearance bins (my favorite section of any store) when I came across a treasure: a small race car photo album for only 10 cents. That's right.....10 cents!!!
Perfect for my little boy, and even more perfect for my tight-wad budget!
I didn't know exactly how I'd use it, but a few days later I had an idea. I found some of those magazines that advertise local cars for sale. You know, the ones they have in the entrances to stores and on city streets? The ones that are FREE. (Which is even better than 10 cents!)
So, I grabbed a couple of those magazines and we put together a homemade car book.
I cut out some 4x6 pieces of cardstock to fit into the photo pockets, and had LM color each of them a different color.
While he was coloring, I flipped through the magazines and cut out cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, etc. of all different colors. We glued them onto the cards to match LM's coloring and put them into the photo album.
It was fun, practically free, and it's become one of our favorite reads!
