Toys & Playthings_: Free Baby Board Books

Make your own - personalized - board books with bristol (poster) board and clear self-stick vinyl (Mac-Tac). Cut a strip of bristol board - 5 1/4" (13.5 cm) x 26"(66 cm).

Fold accordion-style into 5 squares (5 1/4" x 5 1/4") to make 'pages'. If desired, you can round off the corners on each 'page'. Gather ten photographs of your family, bright pictures from magazines, or use your imagination!

Trim to fit and paste one picture on each 'page', using both sides of your book. Cover both sides with Mac-Tac, and trim off excess. Your baby will love it!

You can make several board books out of just one sheet of bristol board and a roll of Mac-Tac.

About Catherine: I have been writing my Frugal Baby Tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three grown up sons, and a grandma - and happily married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a rescue cat, Bella.

Taking care of baby and mom needs naturally, does not have to cost a whole lot of money! Money-saving tips on diapering, diaper washing, safety, sling and baby carriers, toys, clothing, nursing, menstrual needs, traveling with kids, and more!

If you have Frugal Baby Tips to share, we want to hear them! It might even get published!
