Beginning a Busy Book!

After cruising Pinterest I found a LOT of great ideas to create a Busy Book for Jack.


A busy book is a felt or fabric book that contains a bunch of activities to keep a toddler busy and also to help them develop their fine motor skills, learn colours, shapes etc. 

Another name for it is a Quiet time book. There are SO many great options online and I hope to create a LARGE book for my class of 2-3 year olds when I return to work in the fall.

Over the next couple days I'm going to scope out some felt, fabric, buttons, buckles and velcro to create these pages for both a big and small book. Cannot wait for a fun summer sewing project!


  1. Oh my... I have so much stuff you can "scope" out.... and I know Grammie Gail has a nice little shoppe of notions too... don't buy anything.. geeeeeesh.

  2. Haha Well I couldn't resist doing some dollarstore shopping. I am having trouble tracking down felt though. I found a bit at Walmart for a great price but it didn't have very many colours. Thoughts on where I could find more?
