Tin Toy

Tutorial: Tin Toy by Pippiwillow
Using craft glue, I covered the formula tin with fabric, then sprayed it with Spray Adhesive. I had to use eucalytus oil on the exposed tin as the glue made it sticky. Instead of painting the pegs, I used Artline Markers to colour them in.

Each page of this book has a picture of an animal with matching text - "Here is a _____". The pages are A4 size and laminated so the pages are easy for little hands to turn and the pictures are big and are easily wiped clean.
