Carmen’s Quiet Book

2013-03-12 030

“Mom, May I make a Quiet Book for Carmen? ”  These words came from my 12-year-old daughter, Allison, who just loves making things, and became inspired from perusing Pinterest for Quiet Book ideas.

“Sure! That would be great,” says I.  And so began the project you see here before you.  As I wrote in my post on keeping my three-year old occupied during school time,  I can use all the help I can get in finding engaging activities for her.  And this one is a good one for church, too.

Allison soon got busy snipping felt into quite an array of shapes and sizes and hand stitching  them into all these fantastic pages known as a “Quiet Book.”  I had nothing to do with this other than offering her some advice and feedback at various points along the way.  She’s very motivated when it comes to completing a craft project.  This took up most of her spare time for  five days, and here is the result:

I think you’ll agree that she’s becoming quite an accomplished little crafter!
