Flip Sequins Quiet Book Page | Free Template

Get the free template for this Flip Sequins Quiet Book page.  Toddlers and preschoolers will be entertained by these mermaid sequins and practice writing letters and numbers.

Are your kids just as obsessed with these flip sequins as mine?  Everywhere you look there are shirts, pillows, backpacks, pencil pouches, etc. with this awesome fabric.  So I thought, why not make a quiet book page?!  It's so simple, yet the mesmerizing mermaid sequins (as they are also known as) will keep your little one busy for quite a while!

Make it a Learning Opportunity!

Although this page is very entertaining to just move the sequins back and forth, I always try to put in a learning component when I can!  Have your child practice writing their letters (this works easily with straight lines, but can get a little tricky with curved ones).  Excellent fine motor skill practice here!

How to Make It

It is a very quick page to sew with simple materials.  But, not nearly as cheap as felt!  I think my mouth dropped open when I saw the sequin fabric at Joann's for $30 a yard!!  Luckily, we only need 1/4 yard AND it was on sale (or use one of the many coupons Joann's always has).  So it ended up costing me about $5, and I have tons of leftover material.  Sequin pages for each kid!  And their cousins.  And maybe even friends and neighbors.

I sewed everything with my machine, and a walking foot is helpful.  But, if you don't sew and you really want a page like this, I think it would be possible to hand sew with a needle and thread.

This page doesn't HAVE to go in a Quiet Book.  It can be taken by itself in a diaper bag or backpack to a restaurant, church service, or plane or car ride.  But, if you have been in one of my Quiet Book Swaps, you can easily sew it to another Quiet Book page (like my free fish tank template) and add it to your book!

Don't have a Quiet Book at all?  I'd love to help you make one by joining one of my Quiet Book swaps!  It's such an easy and cost effective way to go about it.  You essentially pick one page design and make enough copies for everyone in the group with the template and instructions I provide.  You can participate from anywhere in the U.S. by mailing your pages!

    Oh I’m so excited about all your ideas. And the giveaway. I’ve made 5 or more quiet books over the years and would love to win a set already to put together. I was a teacher before I had children and after after the youngest of my 4 sons started kindergarten until retirement. I have 2 grandsons and recently a new grand baby girl. Two sons and wives are choosing not to have little ones but I’m hoping my youngest will. I value so much kids participating in fun learning activities. I hate seeing my 10 and 61/2 yr old grandsons spending so much time on their tablets. We drag them outside or try to play games and legos when they’re over here. Thanks for promoting learning without computers and so glad I found your site.
