Quiet Book Pages

In preparation for our trip to New York to see my family I'm scrounging for ideas to keep the little man happy on the long plane ride. He's just started walking so any ideas out there would be greatly appreciated!
I've been working on this book forever, other projects keep getting in the way :). These are the pages I've completed so far with help from some of you! Thank you for your ideas on your fabulous blogs!

Car Mat: This is my newest page. I saw this over at it's good for the heart. This is missing a few details, but wanted to post it in here as well.

Apple Picking: I think most of us know where this one came from, homemade by Jill. She has some great ideas! Here he cane pick the apples and put them in the bucket and also the birds snap off.

Mailbox: This idea also came from homemade by Jill. She is awesome! I never would have come up with this idea!

Gone Camping: I still need to make Ian sleeping in a sleeping bag but for the most part this page is done. We love camping so this one was a must!

Match the Shapes:
pieces have magnets where he can match the shapes.

Caterpillar: Here the dots have magnets and you match the colors. The sun also comes off

Fish Bowl: eventually I want to add a fishing pole so Ian can fish the little guys out of the bowl, but for now they aren't attached so he can lift the vinyl and pull the fish out. He loves to shake them because the eyes make noise.

The Changeable Car. I will have a picture of my son to put in the driver's seat so he can see himself driving the cars. All the accessories will velcro onto the car; bumper, lights, wheels, taxi sign, etc. There is a taxi, police car, ambulance, convertible, truck and car. I outlined the car shape so the little guy knows where to place the car and then he can just go to town making his car!

I'll be sure to post the final book when all is said and done. Man this takes a long time, hope he likes it on the plane and of course for church.
