Today I am sharing the third post in the Printable Quiet Book Series. This cute little Ocean Animals Playset includes a background, and figures to make your little marine biologist's day.
From the first post: 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.
- The Printable Quiet Book Page
- a sandwich sized plastic bag
- magnet strips, velcro or small piece of felt
- a glue gun
- a Laminator and Laminating sheets (I love my Scotch Laminator)
Print both the background and the figures. Cut out the figures and then laminate both the background and the figures. There are several ways you can make the figures stick to the background. You can add small squares of felt to the back of each figure and several squares on the background. You can also use velcro squares instead of felt. I prefer to use magnet tape and then keep a thin magnet board at the front of my quiet book to be placed behind the page the child is playing on. This makes it so you don't have to put any thing on the background.
Hot glue one side of a plastic bag on the back of the laminated background so you have a place to store all of the pieces.
Add it to your quiet book and you have a page that is a lot of fun without a lot of work! Check out the other pages of the quiet book here:
