This Biniboo Quiet book Color Pencils activity page is great for learning colors, for matching and also counting.
If you just started planning your quiet book, I suggest you read the Quiet book Guide, where you can find out how to choose the best activity pages for your child and what is the general procedure of making a quiet book.
If you want to use the no-sew method, I kindly suggest reading an article about gluing before you start, to find out if your glue is suitable for making no-sew quiet book activities. Also, do a test and make sure your hot glue doesn’t melt the felt.
If you will make a sewn quiet book, make sure you know how to sew felt in quiet books correctly.
In these instructions, I use the temperature, steam, and time conditions for felt and fusible interfacing, which you can find in our store. If you are using felt or fusible interfacing from somewhere else, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
I suggest you always try on a small felt piece if there are any changes when ironing.
QUIET BOOK COLOR PENCILS
NO-SEW & SEWING INSTRUCTIONS
If you haven’t already, first, create a fabric page base (sewing method) or felt page base (no-sew method). Download and print the FREE PDF Quiet Book Color Pencils pattern for this activity and cut out all the shapes. You can find the pattern at the bottom of the page.
Put the paper pieces on a stiff felt, transcribe them, and then cut them out from felt. If you don’t want to waste hours searching for all the materials you need and transcribing and cutting the felt, check my DIY store where you can buy a pre-cut DIY kit for this activity page.

Iron on one piece of stiff interfacing to one color of each pencil. Use the maximum temperature and turn off the steam. Press and hold for 5 seconds.
First, glue (or sew around) a beige trapezoid to each of the pencil pieces.
Sewing method: you can help yourself with felt glue. It will keep small trapezoids on the place while sewing.
Glue (Sew) the pencils of the same color together, so the beige trapezoids look outward.
Sewing method: You can add two additional stitches along with the pencils for decoration.
Place pots on the prepared page, as shown in the picture. Be sure to put the pots away enough from the edges of the page, so pencils won’t look out of the edges when inside the pots. Glue (or sew) the right, bottom, and left side. Leave the top side open to insert the pencils later.
No-sew method: Be careful to put glue just on the edges of the pots, otherwise, the pencils won’t fit into the pots.
Insert the pencils in the pots.
