Felt play

I have started a new project.  And not just any project.  Oh no, this is a time-consuming one.  I've been pinning quiet book pages for ages and always wanted to make one for Jacob.  He'll be three in March so I think I need to do it sooner rather than later. 


For those that haven't heard of quiet books, they're felt books with activities on each page to keep kids quiet.  It seems that a lot of LDS mums make them for their kids in church, but mine will be secular of course!  Above is the felt pieces for 3 pages.  I haven't got any further as I either need to find my velcro, or buy some more before I can continue.


I've pinned loads of pages for inspiration, but I've drawn my own templates.  This is a face with interchangeable features and accessories.  Hopefully Jacob will enjoy sticking a ginger beard on a rather odd looking man!  Well, who wouldn't?

Beards are TRENDING right now... I'm not sure what LDS stands for....

No reason why children shouldn't keep quiet in secular environments as well as in church, after all. It will be interesting to see which of the pages and plays Jacob prefers, won't it - I'm sure there will be a favourite, aren't you!

YAY for gingers!!! Oh - sorry - that wasn't the important part of the post - it just caught my eye and I couldn't resist cheering ;)

I made a very simple colour-block quiet book/soft book a few years ago - I think they're a great idea! I have page ideas pinned, a book bought, and websites bookmarked to do some more for the kids - the internet and Pinterest are fabulous for getting inspiration!

Excellent idea! I'm sure Jacob will love it. I'd love to make a grown ups' fabric book... probably on the theme of Winter. But it will have to take its place in the queue.
