Activity Book (Quiet Book)

Activity Book (Quiet Book)
I have grand kids that will have a joy with this, so I will be working on this next project.

Anyway, here it is!

I used my Silhouette Cameo (which I love!!) to make the "cover page".

1) First, Cally picks her vegetables in the garden. And then plays with her farm animals (Doesn't have much to do with food, but I wanted to include finger puppets.)
For more about these pages, see this post. The only changes I made from the previous post are the flowers which are brads, the sun and clouds, and the buttons for the door handles.

2) Then she picks her apples & strawberries.
Again for more about these pages, see this post.

3) Then "cuts" her veggies & fruit. See below for more details on these pages.

4) She then makes a pie with her ingredients.

5) And she can also "make" cupcakes. This cupcake page is also educational because she has to match the number of sprinkles with the number on the cupcake liners. More details below.

That's it! I wish I had had more time to make more pages. It was very time consuming as is. Maybe I can add to it in the future. Now I'm craving some cupcakes. ;)


Here are the details for the last few pages of the book.

Cutting board: velcro strips to hold the fruit & veggie pieces.

Beet (these are "puzzles" since she has to assemble them before she can "cut" them)




Weave the pie

This is the only fabric I had that had apples on it. Is it kinda gross that she is baking elephants?

Again my Silhouette Cameo came in handy.

I used puffy paint for the numbers. For the cupcake liners I used stiff glittery felt.
