When our first daughter was little, I painstakingly made a felt quiet book. I spent hours cutting out pieces and hand embroidering, it took me months. My daughter loved it and played with it often, but I always wished it was easier to add pages to it. I wanted to add new pieces and new pages, but it seemed like a daunting task.
Our second daughter is just at the age now where I am wishing for a quiet book again. When I started saving ideas and thinking about what I wanted to do for her book, I realized that a printable quiet book would be so much easier. It would be perfect for people who don't think of themselves as crafty and it would be easy to add more pages to if I wanted to later. So the printable quiet book was born.
Between my husband and I, we have finally completed the book and I am in love with it. There are paper dolls and play sets and all sort of amazing that doesn't take more than some printing and cutting. Today I am sharing the very first page, so look out for the others coming soon!
This mouse page is one of my favorites in the hole book. This threading page is perfect for keeping those little hands busy.
The Printable Quiet Book Page
a glue gun
a Laminator and Laminating sheets (I love my Scotch Laminator)
Print the printable at the end of this post and then cut out each of the holes. I find it is easiest to cut out the holes with an exacto knife, but scissors work too. Once the holes are cut out, place the page in a laminating sheet and feed it through a laminator then, cut the holes out again. Cut the little mouse out and laminate it as well. Cut a long length of ribbon and hot glue one end to the back of the mouse and one end to the back of the page.
Add it to your quiet book and you have a page that is a lot of fun without a lot of work!
