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:

This is such a great idea! I'd love to make a quiet book but they seem like so much work. This is so much easier!

I had always wanted to make one of these for my kids but never got around to it.

I love all things ocean, this looks perfect to do with my young ones.
This is so cool!
Thanks for sharing! I love how easy you make this! My kids would really love this.

This sure will last a much longer time with the pieces being laminated. Great to take traveling too. What a fun way to play with the ocean!
Nicole Burkholder says
What a fun idea! I love how easy it would be to replace a page or add something new. We use quiet books in church a lot!
Michelle De La Cerda says
What a fun idea. My kids love the ocean and space for that matter. These would be fun to make.

The animals are just adorable – I love this idea! So perfect for a road trip or just a "mom-needs-5-minutes-of-quiet" activity!
