DIY- Felt Quiet Book

I have been trying my hands on crafts and easy DIY stuffs to utilize the “ME TIME” after the baby. So tried my hands on “No-Sew” Felt Quiet Book (read Pages). Though I am not much crafty and into these type of projects and did some craft after almost 10 years or so….

The focus or aim in making these felt pages was to introduce some concepts and refine fine and motor skills of my toddler.

Requirement: Felt sheets of different colors, Glue or hot glue gun, pen or marker, velcro, scissors.

I used a “no-sew” quick method. Just stuck the cut shapes with glue.

It’s recommended to use glue for sticking velcro as well, since toddler ends up pulling stuff and it might fall off.

  1. Learning shapes
  2. Length measurement
  3. Concept of Day & Night
  4. Learning numbers
  5. Use of Titch buttons
  6. Surprise Eggs
  7. Concept of movement
  8. Under the sea
  9. Watermelon seeds
  10. Making patterns

PS: I am not very good in cutting shapes etc., so please excuse the messy shapes and uneven surfaces.

  1. Learning Shapes

Felt shapes

One piece ofshape is stuck with glue and a velcro on it and the other part with a velcro on it to stick over the sheet.

2. Length Measurement

Balloons have a velcro and a thread is attached with glue. Other part of velcro is on the sheet to stick balloons on it. The sizes of threads and positions of velcro are in a way that the length of the thread is to measured accordingly.

3. Concept of Day & Night

Here I have stuck two sheet on one page. A blue sheet for “DAY” and a black sheet for “NIGHT”. There are clouds and sun to stick on blue sheet representing Day and moon abd stars to stick on black sheet representing Night. The blue and black sheets are not stuck from the top to keep the clouds, stars, sun and moon.

4. Learning numbers

Under each number cover, buttons or felt stickers etc. can be stuck to count numbers.

5. Use of Titch button

6. Surprise Eggs

These are 2 pieces of egg glued with one end leaving centre part open. i have kept a duck, a car, a star and a fish. You can choose any character/object as per your baby’s choice.

It is a very good concept for sense of discovery and Surprise.

7. Concept of Movement

These fish swim up and down the sea waves. Very good for understanding of the under the water concept.
