Too much excitement just might kill me!
I’ve been inspired by Pinterest to make a quiet book for Monkey. I am especially in love with the fabulous pages made by Stephanie at Imagine Our Life. I aspire to such awesomeness.
I don’t think Monkey is quite old enough to really appreciate a quiet book, andplusalso I am a slow poke, so I’m planning to make it as a present for his second birthday. This gives me 8 months to plan, design and make the quiet book. I am concerned that this will not be long enough.
The first thing I need to do is compile a list of activities I want to include, and try to figure out which ones will actually suit a 2 year old. Then I will work out how to combine them and design pages for each one.
So without further ado, here is my list of ideas for quiet book activities so far:
I think my biggest challenge is going to be keeping the book age appropriate and not trying to add in every awesome idea I’ve ever seen. Note to self: this does not have to be the be all and end all of quiet books… I can always make another one when Monkey gets older! Plus if I make the book binder-style, I can add and remove pages without having to make an entirely new book.
Have you seen or made a quiet book? What other ideas should I include?
