This Biniboo Quiet book Starfish activity page is great for observation and fine motor skills.
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 will use the temperature, steam, and time conditions for the fusible interfacing, which you can find in our DIY Kits. If you are using another fusible interfacing, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
QUIET BOOK STARFISH PAGE
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 Starfish Quiet Book 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 to buy a pre-cut DIY kit for this activity page.

First, glue or sew the beige sea bottom.
Take the white rectangle felt, put on two black buttons, and then gray mash fabric (Tulle). Check with the orange starfish if the buttons are in a position that you can see them through the starfish’s eyes.
No-sew method: Put the glue around the starfish’s eyes and glue the star on the white felt (with buttons and mesh fabric in between).
Sewing method: Clip everything together and sew around the starfish’s eyes.
Cut the excess white felt and mesh fabric so that both remain inside the edges of the starfish.
Glue or sew things on the prepared page in the next order: the starfish, the seaweed, the rocks.
Draw a starfish’s smile with an erasable marker. You use an erasable marker because if you don’t like the line you drew, you can make another one.
No-sew method: Make the same line with a permanent red marker.
Sewing method: You can make the same line with the permanent red marker or a Triple Stitch.
Draw a line with an erasable pen for the green leaves.
No-sew method: Make the same line with a permanent black marker. Then glue the leaves around the line you drew. You can make additional lines on the leaves with a permanent black marker for a decoration.
Sewing method: Take the small cord and seal the edges with the lighter. Put it on the line you draw and sew it on the page with the straight stitch, needle in the center position. Sew all the leaves with the same thread color.
