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.
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.
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,
