Quiet Book- Counting, Shapes, and Colors

We couldn't have a quiet book without counting, shapes, and colors. 

The counting page is simply beads with ribbon to slide back and forth. 

The shapes are snap on, snap off to teach that skill as well. I was pretty excited that I was able to get all my shapes on one page. There are actually three pieces of felt used for each shape. 

First, I hand stitched the snaps onto the bottom and top piece of each shape. Then, I machine sewed the bottom to the felt page. Next, I blanket stitched the third shape piece onto the top shape piece that had the snap sewn on. This way, the thread from sewing the snaps on is hidden. Looks much nicer this way I think.
