For my project I wanted to make something I could reuse, while teaching my kids more about the Beatles. It is important that we pass these awesome Fab Four onto the next generation, and I, for one, am doing my part.
I ended up making my son a 'Yellow Submarine' quiet time book.
|The cover of Charlie's quiet time book|
|The inside cover|
|The first page, this is when time goes backward and the Beatles turn into kids.|
The clock hands turn. For this I covered large popsicle sticks in felt. John Lennon on this page.
|From the sea of holes scene. It says, Where is Jeremy? Ringo Starr on this page.|
|Charlie loves mirrors, so when you lift up the hole, there is Jeremy, and a mirror.|
|The word 'More', the hearts and the teapot are all velcroed on, so they can come off. To make them thicker I double layered the felt. This is from the 'All Together Now' song.|
|Here, the pictures velcro on, the look at me square is a mirror. The yellow is an envelope to hold all the velcro pieces.|
|This is supposed to be like looking out the front window of the submarine. The wheel turns to change the colors and the buttons are dog squeaker toys.|
|Looking out the window of the submarine to see the familiar characters.|
|George Harrison this page. From when the motor breaks.|
|I love this line, "What's the matter fellas? Blue Meanies?" The flowers can unbutton. Paul McCartney on this page.|
|Charlie loves his new book.|
