To say that I'm excited about this project would be a huge understatement. I put a lot of thought and energy into designing a new quiet book, and I knew I wanted to it to be bright, fun and educational. I wrote down ideas for seven different pages and figured out what skills and activities I wanted to incorporate. All of the activities are sewn onto colorful sheets of felt, and I paired each felt sheet with matching colorful fabric on the back! This was my first time using all wool felt and all machine sewing and I'm so happy with the results! Wool felt makes such a big difference!
This book makes a wonderful Christmas or birthday gift and provides hours of entertainment! You can remove pages for individual play or to swap them out with new pages. The activities are perfect for quiet play time at home, or take a few pages on the go with you to keep your little ones busy in waiting rooms, restaurants, church, car rides and plane rides!
The red page has 26 circles that velcro to the page to help practice the alphabet!
The orange page is a clock with hands that you can move.
The yellow page has three skills to practice: buckling, buttoning and zippering.
The green page has six shapes that can be grouped with their matching buttons.
The blue page helps with learning to lace and tie shoes!
The turquoise page has squares that make up three generations of a family tree. The squares velcro onto the page to help learn about your family. Each square is a pocket made of felt and clear vinyl so you can insert your own family pictures into them! The last generation line can fit up to four children.
The purple page is an I Spy page with four colorful animals mixed in with beads.
