I had been eyeing off some beautiful busy books, but I wanted to try something that I could make in one morning, and was more easy to post to a friend or fit in a handbag.
This was the result. A busy roll. There are two pockets at the bottom, one velcro shut, one snap shut. A lacing activity with felt and a ribbon and button, a zip (which leads to no-where, much to the kids disappointment.) and some pony beads on a string maze.
The loops were a bit small on the string maze to start with, but the kids thought it looked appealing, and especially loved the pockets and the lacing.
