On this 5th page of my no sew quiet book for my toddler we made some counting and sensory hands!
Still need to make the quiet book? Here is the how to make a no sew quiet book tutorial.
This page is inspired by Melissa & Doug Hands Counting Peg.
Use some skin colored felt and then trace your toddler, older child or your own hands out on my paper.
My 5 year old was more than happy to help after my toddler count sit still long enough for me to get a good trace!
Cut the shapes out. I used a normal school glue stick to stick the paper on the felt for cutting as it peels of very well but still sticks enough for me to cut out.
Next add the decor to the hands as they will need to dry before you attach to the quiet book page.
I used raised glitter glue on the hands. Making counting dots on each finger and for the other hand numbers. These also provide a very nice texture bump for toddlers to feel as they dry raised.
Once the glitter is dry on the hands hot glue the hands down on the quiet book page by the palm area leaving the fingers free for folding.
This is great for folding and counting!
Toddlers also love to compare their hand size to the felt hands.
(and that red on her fingers is from earlier art with dot markers!)
Pin this how to make a quiet book resource for later!
