Turns out I have a felt addiction- I made little miss a 2nd Quiet Book
Yup…I’m crazy! But when she’s playing nice and quietly and actually sitting down during our church meetings it’s completely worth it! And now that we have 2 I can rotate them each week to keep things exciting:)
See Quiet Book #1 and all of my tips and tricks here
Now let’s take a tour…
For this book I used eyelets to bind it which I love because now I can add more pages if I want to or take out a page for repair. I used a nice sturdy vinyl for the cover
Mix up all of the animal heads to create your own crazy animals. I painted the animal bodies and then made the heads from felt
Dress-Up with Wardrobe
Open up the wardrobe and you’ll find boy or girl hair (I saw this idea somewhere else and now I can find it, but I thought it was genius!) and several different outfits. I didn’t bother to sew Velcro to the outfits- they stick to the felt undershirt and undies just fine without it
Not my favorite page but little miss is a big basketball fan so she likes it. The ball for each sport comes off so you can mix them up or do a matching type game
A little car comes out of the garage and can drive through the “town”. All of the road signs come off and they make a great shape matching game.
Lots of fun animals! They store in the little pocket on the front of the barn and then they have a spot to Velcro too (except for the bird which just slides into the nest)
Table Setting/Grocery Shopping
The dishes and silverware store inside the tablecloth- get them out and see if you can find the right place for everything- I know my husband can’t quite yet:) On the other page you can load up your cart with laminated food. Then decide what to eat that day and attach it to the plate- there’s also a spot for a drink.
Simple chicken puzzle and on the very last page I added a pocket so we can store crayons, snacks, etc. in there
This book doesn’t have quite as many pages as my 1st one but I still love it and I’m glad I got around to making it before #2 came along. Now when he’s 2 and the little miss is 4 they’ll both have one to play with, which will make life much more peaceful:)
