Amy here again today sharing another quiet book idea. Today I'll be showing you how to make some simple puzzles. Children love to put together puzzles. They're also great for developing hand-eye coordination and problem solving skills.
What you'll need to make simple quiet book puzzles:
1. Download Following Templates:
2. A pre-cut blank quiet book page. I always use Pellon peltex for my quiet book pages--it's sturdy and you don't have to worry about fraying edges. I make all my quiet book pages 7 x 8.5 inches.
3. Transfer paper (I like the Avery brand)
4. A sheet of Pellon peltex (to apply your puzzles to)
5. Iron and a press cloth (a scrap piece of cotton fabric)
7. Single hole paper punch
First gather together your iron, press cloth, transfer paper, and sheet of peltex. Download the template and print out your fruits and veggies onto the transfer paper. Follow the transfer paper instructions to apply the pictures to the peltex.
Once you've transferred the pictures, remove the paper backing and cut out the pictures.
Cut each picture into three pieces. I know they're so cute that you hate to slash them up but you can do it!
Apply velcro to the back of each fruit and veggie piece. I like to use the sticky back dots for this. Now your puzzles are all done and can be put together . . .
however your imagination chooses.
Don't forget to add holes for binding along the edge of your page using a single hole punch.
