Quiet Book

I’ve seen a ton of adorable ideas on Pinterest for Quiet Books, so I wanted to tackle one for my son, who is 1 1/2 yrs old.  He loves the other felt toys I’ve made thus far for him, and the quiet book has been a hit too!

Cover:

The letters detach and attach with Velcro.  I’m debating on attaching these to the page with ribbon, but haven’t done it yet.  I got the idea from this pin on Pinterest.  Also, this is where I got the pattern for the elephant.

I think this is my favorite page (and my son’s too!).  It was also the easiest page to assemble.  I love using buttons for accents and they are really fun for kiddos to play with.  Here is my “inspiration pin.

Page 3:

This page is another favorite, and is simple yet adorable.  The ant crawls across the leaf on a ribbon.  I loved all of the ideas from this particular pin, especially for the age I was targeting for this book (age 1-2 yr old).

Page 4:

Chicken and the egg!  My son likes to “quack” at this page (I figure I’ll teach him the difference between chicken and ducks later 🙂 ).  I like that I attached the chick to the page so we don’t risk losing it, though my son likes tugging on it at times.  This is from another quiet book that I really loved.

Page 5:

Mr. Potato Head!  I was concerned about whether or not my toddler would “get” this page or if I was getting a little aggressive with this one.  He surprised me!  Since we have been working on learning facial features, he actually really loved this page.  Here was my inspiration pin.

My son has gotten excited about shoes, probably because it means that we are going somewhere.  This was my (weak) attempt at a “chuck” style shoe.  I based this page on this blog I found (which, has a ton of ideas for various pages).
