Here's my latest page for my crocheted quiet book: A Piggy Bank.
It features a paper money bill, which is sewn onto the page and 10 buttons that represent coins. The coins can be inserted into the piggy bank on the upper side and taken out through a larger hole on the belly of the piggy. This can be closed with velcro so the coins don't fall out.
I've asked my friend wether her child is prone to swallowing small objects and she said that she doesn't do this anymore. Still, before giving it to the little one I'll have her mother inspect this page and save it for a later time, if she deems it to risky yet.
I've seen a few piggy bank quiet book pages and I loved the idea of giving her something to animate her to count and to save money.
What do you think?
