I’ve been wanting to make my son some kind of texture activity for a while. I’ve seen texture boards, books and cards on Pinterest but I decided to combine mine with a family photo album. When my daughter was a baby I made her a photo album of special faces and she still loves looking through it.
For this craft I just used items I had around the house. Even the book itself was something I had bought a number of years ago but never got around to using. I selected my photos of family and friends and stuck them in. Then I chose a variety of items all with different textures to surround the photos. I used my glue gun to secure them into place. The items I used include pom poms, buttons, bubble wrap, wool, pipe cleaners, sandpaper, velcro, foam stickers, corrugated card and scouring pad. I finished it off by attaching riddons on to the rings. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out and both the monsters are enjoying looking through it.
