You will need:
- The Printables at the end of this post
- 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.

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!
Jessi Joachim says
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 says
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.

Super cute printable! And this does look a lot easier than a fabric quiet book. I love the cookies!
Tereza Kohutova says
Such a lovely printable, you've done a really good job – it's ever so neat and I bet kids love them! x
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 says
How neat! This is where I miss having a laminator since I used it a lot for these type of projects.
Now this is an adorable and educational printable. Who doesnt like little cookies lol
