My son Jacob loves I Spy Books or "Find It" books as we like to call them. And this summer I thought what better way to surprise him then with a personalized I Spy book. And what better time to have one than during an 8 hour car ride to the beach. So, the week before we left for vacation, when I should have been packing and cleaning the house, I was making Jacob his very own I Spy book...which I made for each of his cousins to have for their very long car rides as well. I'm not going to lie, I actually got the idea from a DIY I Spy bottle that I found on pinterest. So, what started off as an easy project idea of throwing some sand and tiny objects into an empty bottle turned into me placing toys, game pieces, and different objects in just the right position, taking pictures, editing pictures, printing pictures, and placing them in a photo album. It was all worth it! The books turned out super cute and Jacob (and his cousins) were very pleased with their surprises!! (And our bags got packed, the house got cleaned and in order, and we were on our way...just a few hours later than planned....)
Here are a few of the pictures from inside the book:
Board games made for awesome pictures!! Especially Scrabble!
