Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Hair!

 

When I was creating quiet books before Christmas I wanted to give the two little girls each a “hair” page.  BUT, I wanted them both to be different.  I didn’t want to give the girls the exact same books.  So, even though a few pages were the same, I did manage to make these pages different for them.

Book #1

I know in this household that the movie “Tangled” was a big hit.  So when I saw a page similar to the one I created I knew it was what I wanted to do.  Again, I was a little limited as to colours, but I think this page worked up great!

I created a tower and used the window to secure the pieces of yarn used for hair.  I added some hair clips (from the Dollar Store) that she can use to play with her Rapunzel’s hair.

 

Book #2

Now for the other book, the mother had expressed an interest in a Bible page that I had previously blogged about so I knew I was going to use it.

I created a silhouette of a face and added an eyebrow, eyes/lashes and lips.  Then, before I hot-glued the head to the page, I took my strands of black yarn and hot-glued them to the under-side of the head.  She actually has some shorter pieces for bangs but I pulled them back into the braid before I took the picture.  I then added hair clips to this one as well.

I really like these pages and, they have the added benefit of being somewhat educational. They’re allowing the girls to learn certain mechanical skills through braiding hair, etc.  I have a couple other “educational” pages to share with you as well…so make sure to join me next week for another installment of our quiet book pages.

For His Glory,

Amanda

    1. Hi Girls! =)

      I’ve been checking out your blog, too, since I read in your mom’s Christmas letter that you had one. I’m glad you liked the page. This is just one of many that I did for some Quiet Books for some children to use in church, the doctor’s office, etc. I’ve posted two previous ones as well in earlier posts and there are a few more pages coming. I’m hoping to keep making these and try different pages. Miss you too!
