Quiet Book: Marble Maze

Page 4 of the quiet book is another simple one.

I was running out of time, so I threw together the most simple ones I had.  =)

It's a maze.

I sewed a marble in between the fabric and into a maze.

I kept the mazes very simple since my daughters are only 3 and 1.
And also because that was easier.

This one was going to be more complex, but the first time I did it I didn't measure right.
The poor marble got stuck.  So, this maze was bigger and much simpler.

But, I think this page has a lot of potential for fun and I will definitely be trying again.

Cute idea - my son loves, loves, loves mazes! I'll have to make one of these for him - but I don't think his will be quiet! He is constantly adding his own 'sound track' which though adorable, quite loud. ;)

I saw the velcro links page that you did a while ago, but I just now discovered the other pages in your book! WOW These are fantastic. You must have spent a good deal of time putting it all together. I really love this kind of thing!

I LOVE this project! I would play with this for hours myself, I'm just a big kid some days.
What a super baby gift & one for each sibling too. Just change the images to fit the childs interest.
I'll be addingh this to my inspiration file.

Now I absolutely LOVE this page. I have never seen anything like this one before and I am majorly obsessed with quiet books, so that's saying a lot. What a fun idea. It makes me want to run right to The Scrap Heap (aka my sewing desk) and start making one! Awesome!
