Zoo Book for granddaughters

Hello! My daughter and I are going to take my two granddaughters to the National Zoo this weekend. Chloe is 2 1/2 years old, and Sophie is a little over 1 year. So I was trying to come up with something to document our trip and be fun for the girls. Chloe will do most of the work on this little book at the zoo because Sophie is still a little young for stickers. What I came up with is a Zoo sticker book. I used a Silhouette store design for the little book #25504 by Lori Whitlock. I cut out 10 pages for the book from yellow cardstock. Then I used some printable graphics from the Noah's Ark collection at Lettering Delights to highlight one animal per page. I also made matching stickers of each animal from sticker paper. The idea is that when we see a certain animal at the zoo, she will take the sticker and put it over the picture of the animal in the book. Hopefully I will get pictures of each animal and be able to print little pictures to put on the page also. I included two pages in the back of the book for the stickers, and three glassine envelopes with extra stickers and storage for little things we might pick up while there. Without further ado, let me show you how it turned out.

 Two more glassine envelopes for souvenirs.
Back of album

I bound the album with ribbon. I tried using 1" rings, but it was too bulky. As I was writing this up, I see I am missing the elephant and toucan stickers. I need to go add them in. Good grief! Luckily, it's easy to add pages. :)
Anyway, I think it's going to be a fun trip, and I hope the girls have fun with this little sticker book. Thanks for "sticking" with me!
