Quiet Book

So, I am always thinking of ways to try and keep my boys quiet at church.  I also like taking things that help them to remember the Savior and their Father in Heaven.  So I came up with this inexpensive easy quiet book.  All you need is:

  • A ring clasp to hold it all together (you could use ribbon or yarn too, whatever you have)
  • Cereal box
  • scrapbook paper
  • access to a computer and printer to print out pictures and wording
First what you will want to do is find the pictures that you would like to use and decide on what wording you would like.  All of my pictures I got from here. Then using my photo editing software I just started making my pages and then posted them onto a 8 1/2 by 11 page in my program. My little book had 18 pages and a front and back cover.  I then printed them on matte photo paper (you could use cardstock) and cut them all out. Then I measured and cut my cereal box to size.  I used scrapbook paper for the front and back, so I cut it to size too.  Then I started assembly.  I glued the cover on and then started gluing on the pages in the order I wanted them. I put my lable on the front, bunched a hole in the corner of each of them and put them on the ring. So now hopefully it will be something to keep my boys busy, at least for a little bit!
