Q – Quiet Books (A to Z Blogging Challenge)

While I found the idea of a quiet book very very appealing, I couldn’t complete making this in a month. It is a tedious process and you will see why. But I have brought together a compilation of quiet books on various sites, made by really patient and fantastic bloggers.

Q

A quiet book is essentially an activity book for kids, made from fabric, which keeps them engaged while you are in an all important meeting, church, or you need to have some much needed quiet time. Making it colorful ensures that the kids are immersed in it for hours, so it’s a win-win situation for everyone.

Isn’t this fantastic? Kids can make their own lattice work pie, and pretend bake for quiet a while. Everything is handout and stitched to perfection. I just love the attention to detail. There’s a whole lot of other activities from apple picking, color matching, building shapes like carrots, or pumpkins, It is indeed the best quiet book I have seen online.

Another amazing quiet book  here. This is one of the pages which is a dress-up game for girls. Others in the same book include putting animals in the barn, attaching flowers to stems and putting the fish in the fish tank. How this is done, is that usually a small piece of velcro is attached to the back of the pieces that are to be attached, and they stick to the felt when the child places them in position.

Obsessively Stitching

This amazing lady turned pot holders into a quiet book. Quite an idea!

Crafting Chicks

Quite amazing this book, teaches a whole lot while being so much fun for kids. Tiffany has painstakingly created this quiet book and blanket stitched everything into place. SHe has also sewn a ribbon all around the outside of her book, so it is easier to carry it like a bag. Kids can carry it themselves because these are so light.

 

I am definitely going to make one for the kids this year. Just don’t know when, because it will need a whole lot of patience 🙂

 

Happy DIYing people!

  1. This is a very fascinating idea! Although, to be honest, I would end up sitting with Gy and explaining everything, so it will be a ‘not-so-quiet’ book at the end of it 😉
