Making a Quiet Book on your own can be overwhelming. Where do you start? What do you need? So many details!

I knew I wanted screen-free activities for my kids when we were at restaurants, waiting for the doctor, at church, or at sibling's extra-curricular activities.

I wanted to use the time to connect with my kids. Handing them a device would not only make them zone out, but also quite possibly throw a fit when it was time to put it down!

And I knew the perfect thing - a Quiet Book. Having 18 activities in one place that help my little ones practice fine motor skills, different learning concepts, and engage in imaginative play. Easy decision!! I had one as a kid and still remember it fondly.

But only one problem. Where do I even begin?! My Pinterest Board was full of random ideas, but it all seemed like a lot of work.

Gathering the templates, making the supply list, buying supplies (often WAY more than I needed for just one page), and ALL. THE. CUTTING...I was over the project before I even got to sewing!

Meet the Quiet Book Queen

Hi, I'm Kailan, and I'm all about helping parents (and grandparents) keep little ones busy without the use of technology.

about the quiet book queen

My kids are 6 and 8 now, but I've been there. Limiting screen time was (and still is) so important to me, but it wasn't easy!

It takes a lot more planning and preparation than handing over your phone, but it is SO worth it. It is an investment in your child's future, and the payoff is a child that doesn't need to be entertained by a screen. Creativity will be abundant!

Kids will hop on the technology train soon enough. Let's first teach them how to use their imagination, interact with others, and provide activities that don't require staring at a screen and shutting out the world. (Ever tried to get the attention of a screen-connected kid?!)

A Quiet Book is a must have tool in your "keep 'em busy" parenting tool belt.  I mean 18 activities in one place?  Learning through play while working on fine motor skills?  Doesn't get better!

I enjoy creating these activities, as well as helping other people make them through my swaps and page kits. (I was a teacher before kids, so being creative and leading a group is my thing!)

Are you ready for a Quiet Book in your life? Start the Calendar Quiet Book Page Kit Subscription and let's do this!

SUCH A SPECIAL KEEPSAKE

I fondly remember my childhood Quiet Book! Your little one will love and appreciate your hard work. Then pass it on to the next generation.

Who a Subscription is For...

You'll LOVE this if:

  • You've always wanted a Quiet Book, but have never known where to start.
  • You are looking for screen-free activities for your little one.
  • You like to sew or want a project to practice!

This isn't for you if:

  • You need a Quiet Book right now -click here for pre-made books.
  • You want to make the pages all at once - click here for templates of various other books I have created.
  • You want a non-sewing project - glue just doesn't hold up over time so this wouldn't be an ideal project for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your cancellation policy?

You can cancel your subscription at any time.

How much is shipping?

Shipping is included in your subscription, so you don't pay anything more!

What age is this Quiet Book good for?

These pages contain small parts and magnets (although sewn inside) so it is not recommended for children under 3 years of age.  All children should be supervised by adults while they are playing with the book. 

What's included in each page kit?

  • The instructions for the pages
  • Pre-cut felt pieces
  • Words and details ready to iron on
  • Any other necessary supplies (zippers, snaps, ribbon, specialty pieces, etc.)
  • Grommets for every 2 pages
  • Shipping
  • Access to the private Facebook group for questions and tips

What is NOT included in the page kits?

  • Tools for hole punching and installing the grommets - Tools needed can be found here.
  • The August and November pages have an option for snaps to help make pieces move. The tool for installing the snaps can be purchased in my Amazon shop here under Tools and Supplies. This is optional though. Snaps are not a necessity to make the page function.

How long is the subscription?

The subscription will last a year. You will get 10 page kits over the next 12 months. You will be automatically charged $28 on the 28th of each month (except your initial month of $14). There are no payments or page kits shipped in January and July. Then it will be automatically cancelled once you receive all of them.

Do I need to know how to sew?

Quiet Books are so much more durable when they are sewn. But some small pieces can be glued or hand stitched if you'd prefer.

What kind of sewing experience do I need?

This can be a beginner project! You are basically sewing felt to a background. Most pages have straight lines or larger curves. Just a few have small pieces, but those can be hand stitched or glued on if you'd prefer. The instructions are detailed with many pictures to help guide you. Plus you'll have access to the private Facebook group to ask any questions.

How do I get in the private Facebook group?

After you purchase the subscription, check your email and it will have a link to join!

What other Quiet Book options do you have?

I also organize quiet book swap groups where you pick one page design and make 16 copies. You have about 3 months to make your pages and then we swap! You can participate from anywhere in the U.S. by mailing your pages.

I rotate between 3 general preschool swap groups, all with different page options. I also have themed Quiet Book swaps such as Halloween, Christmas, Spring, and Elementary Age for older kids.

Don't miss out on the Advent Calendar Ornament Swap or the Farmer's Market Felt Food Swap too!
