The Free Quiet Book Theme Ideas and Templates List will help you chose the perfect theme and templates when deciding to make a quiet book.
And...did I mention, all the templates in this post are free. There are lovely designs on Etsy, I know. Why have I not added those?
The freebies are all you're needing for the moment. Let's say, working with felt is not that easy. And, your first attempt may not look like the one's on Etsy, Pinterest and Instagram.
So, rather start with something that won't disappoint you too much, and get the hang of it.
Nobody is perfect, but I don't want you to be discouraged and not to attempt any quiet books in future.

Let's say you have a one year old grandson, and you want to make him an educational quiet book.
One option is to chose one sub-category, like color and make all the pages in his book different colors.
You could opt to add all the main colors to one/two pages, another with the alphabet, following numbers etc.
You be the creator.

Back in the day when my little brother was still a baby, he had a cloth book, with zig-zag edges. The pictures were printed on the fabric. He loved that book and took it everwhere.
Today, you get the very same cloth books, plastic one's and then off-course the very special quiet book (activity book, sensory book or busy book, as it is also called).
Then you get variations on all of the above:
- No-sew quiet books;
- Printed quiet books;
- Activity Cubes;
- Wooden activity boards;
- Activity mats
- Story telling mittens
- and lots more
The ideas are endless.
Make yours priceless.
