"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Made: Quiet Book

I added three more pages to the quiet book!

I love the way it is coming together.  SO incredibly easy!!

I have put them in a binder.  Only problem with that is the pages are a little bigger than what a piece of paper would be so it doesn't fit perfect.  I also will have to change to a bigger binder (this one is only a one inch binder) as I add more pages. 

Lacing Page:
I cut two rectangles and cut little slits along one side.  Used hot glue to secure on one side and used a lace from another lacing toy we had.

Flower Page:

This is an idea I found online.  I pretty much copied it exact.  I eye-balled it and drew my own outline for the flower.  Glued numbers to each petal and then traced around each petal so there is an outline on the white page.

I cut a little curve in the bottom of each petal to help fit around the circle nice and tight.  The pink pot at the bottom is hot glued all around the sides and bottom edges, but the top is open so the petals can go inside.  I later added Velcro to the back of the petals.  The nice thing about this is it doesn't have to go in numerical order for it to still be a fun quiet activity, but it will help the learning of that!

Build an Ice Cream Cone:

I have seen this idea for pages before, so this was a copied one too.  Again, I just eye balled the cone and scoops of ice cream.  Cut, glued, and added Velcro. 
Later, I plan to add numbers to the scoops so they will go in order.  Or I was thinking even little dots so the kids will count the dots and put them in order that way.  But they aren't ready for that yet!


  1. The ice cream cone page is ADORABLE! And I need to make a lacing page for Ember. We do not have that one yet and it looks fun and easy!!

  2. I missed this among all your new posts! What fun pages! Great job! Love how it is a no sew craft! Hope you enjoy making it as much as I am sure your kids love playing with it!
