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.

- 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.
