You will need:
- 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.
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:

That is such a cute idea! Both of my boys are so into space right now so they would love it.
Those are so cute. I bet my daughter would have a ton of fun with these. Great idea.

I am probably going to sound silly but what is a 'quiet book'? Either way the book looks great and I do like Sci-Fi.
Oh I love this one! I think that my 6 year old would enjoy helping my 2 year old with it. Such a great idea!
This sounds like such a good activity. I struggle with finding quiet time activities, but this is a great idea.

This is really cute and I love that you could make it with the kids. I would love aligning a book to the activity to promote reading.
