I was organizing pictures on my computer the other day and came across these that I never posted from last year! Yes, last January I started making my toddler a few quiet book pages to keep in our church bag to help entertain him at church. I posted the other quiet book pages here on the blog, but somehow this one fell through the cracks.
Even though it's already been a year my toddler still plays with these pages during church. I don't know if it's because he only gets to see them once a week or what, but it's nice to see them still being used!
This 'Faces' page was really easy to put together, I wasn't worried about perfect shapes and design I just wanted something quick and easy that my little guy could play with, and this is what I came up with.I just started out with the orange rectangle piece of felt.
I cut out a cream-colored oval shape out of felt, and using my hot glue gun, I glued the oval to the orange piece.
Using some scrap yellow felt I cut out, what is supposed to be hair, and glued it on top of the oval.
Then I got some black, white, cream, and red scraps of felt and started making the details.
Here we have sunglasses, a nose, two eyebrows, two eyes, and a mouth.
I also made two ears and a mustache.
I then cut out a blue rectangle piece of felt and glued around the sides and bottom so we had a place to store all of the face pieces.
Here is what it looks like with all of the pieces put away.
I love watching my son pull out all of the pieces and make 'happy faces' as he calls it.
