Anyone who has made one of these knows how wonderful it feels to get it done. This has been on my "to do" list for years, and I love how it turned out. I'm so thankful to all those who posted their great ideas for quiet books, and I'll do my best to link you to the one's I drew inspiration from. I love watching the girls play with this! Such gratification!
Apple and Orange (or peach) orchard
ABC's. They could also spell 3 lettered words.This one was a lot of fun. Though I may have done more clothes than I needed too. Make it a boy or a girl.
The little pocket holds hair accessories.
Button on the flowers.
Stuff with candy and surprises!
Using the template from Homemade by Jill. Click Here. The animals are finger puppets. How fun!
Lift the flap page.
Pictures are ironed onto fabric with Iron-on transfer paper.
Make a puzzle. They put it together in the brown square, but I thought I would show what it looked like. There is also a star, and a flower. Just like in this website, from Crafty Chic
Weave a cherry pie!
I think I way overdid on this one, but that is because it was so fun. The Food Bag is a little bulky.
They can make several options of dinner, breakfast, lunch and snacks. It's a lot of fun and educational! My husband had to ask me what a few of them were (even though I thought it was obvious). Hopefully you can figure them out!
This one isn't quite finished. I have intentions to copy and laminate pictures of different kid movies and my girls, and they can change the channel on the TV by alternating pictures that slide in and out.
Envelope for letters. The other page will hold a notebook too, to write the letters. Another template from Homemade by Jill, Here.
Color WheelIn order to get it done, I had to use the finished pages as entertainment.
It actually was too thick to be one book. Now the girls don't have to fight over them.
