When you have a busy toddler running around who needs to be entertained, it’s good to have something they can do on their own. This Shape Quiet Book is a great activity for them to learn and play.

This book shows shapes that are found in real life. Each page has items that are seen in regular day-to-day life (traffic lights, food, windows, kites, etc.). When I was teaching my toddler shapes, he had a hard time until he realized that shapes were all around us. There is a simple shape matching page at the end of the quiet book, but all of the other pages use objects from daily life.

How to Put Together the Book

First, print off all the pages of the Shape Quiet Book. Laminate the first 10 pages as they are. The last three pages contain the pieces that will go on the pages of the quiet book. Cut out each of the pictures and laminate them.

You will now get Velcro dots with a sticky back (you can also just use sticky back Velcro cut into small pieces). Put one Velcro dot on the back of each individual picture from the last 3 pages.

You will also put a Velcro dot on the middle of all the shapes on each regular page.

Finally, hole punch each of the pages so they line up. I used a three hole punch across the top, but you could also do two hole punches in the left side. Secure the book together using binder rings or ribbon.

How to Use the Quiet Book

To use the quiet book, start with the pictures on the left side of the page. Your child will move the pictures to the right side to complete the picture. For example, on the star page, the stars are on the left side. Your child will move them to the correct spot on the right side to fill the night sky with stars.
