Counting Cookies Quiet Book Page


I can't even tell you how many hours I have spent sewing quiet book pages. Lots of little tiny pieces of felt and frustration later, I decided there had to be a better way. Enter the Printable Quiet Book, I went through and designed all of the things I wanted in a quiet book in an easy printable form. Simple print all the pages, do a little cutting and some laminating and voila! A quiet book! 

This is the perfect quiet book for someone looking to save time and money. It is also perfect for someone who doesn't consider themselves crafty. I have already released 10 pages (links to all of them at the end of the post) and there are more to come. Today, I am sharing this fun counting/matching page. It is a great option for teaching kids to recognize numbers in different ways. 



You will need:
  • The Printables at the end of this post
  • scissors
  • magnetic tape or velcro 
  • a Laminator and Laminating sheets (I love my Scotch Laminator)
Print the pages in color and laminate the background page. Cut out each of the cookies and then laminate them as well. After they are laminated, cut them out again.  There are several ways you can make the cookies stick to the background. You can add small squares of felt to the back of each card and a piece on each square on the background. You can also use velcro squares instead of felt. I prefer to use magnet tape on each of the cards and the background.

Add this page to your quiet book, with the pieces.  You can glue a sandwich bag to the back of one of the pages to hold the pieces or you can add a small zipper pouch at this point in the book. I prefer the zipper binder pouches.

These are so cute! I'm definitely not crafty, but I think I could manage this! I bet this would be great on an airplane!

I do not consider myself crafty. I actually consider myself whatever the opposite would be haha but this seems like something I could handle.

Linda Carmical said...

I used to consider myself crafty, it was a phase I went through I think. A long 20 year or so phase! This looks like so much fun for kids and with 2 very youg grand daughters now, this may be on my list of to dos!

This reminds me of a file folder game that the kids used to play in preschool, when I was working at the school. Such a great way to keep the little ones busy and quiet.

This is a cute idea to work on numbers with the kids. They get to play with cookies so I'm sure they love it!

These are so cute. I'm going to need a quite book in a few years (pregnant with my first) and I've dreaded the idea of making a felt one. They seem so difficult. The ones you share seem so much more manageable and easy to make. I never would have thought to do it this way.

Heather said...

This is such a great idea! I am with you, taking the time to sew all those little pieces is so tedious! I used to take so many shortcuts, this is much easier!

Hil'Lesha O'Nan said...

How neat! This is where I miss having a laminator since I used it a lot for these type of projects.

Kiwi said...
