Quiet Book Supplies
- Hand size 4×6 photo album (can be purchased at many stores)
- 4×6 photos of your choice, close-ups work best
- Dry erase markers with built in eraser
- Downloaded book cover below
Gather your supplies! We used pictures uploaded to the closest Walgreen’s but there are a variety of other stores that do one hour photos and let you upload them online and pick them up!
Print and cut out your book cover.
Many of these books have an insert in the front. You can take them out if desired or place your cover over them. If your book does not allow an insert on the front you can also glue the cover on the front.
Slide in your printed cover.
Add your photos!
Pick a photo and start drawing. Keep in mind these take a couple minutes to dry if you want to save them. The back of the opposite page will smudge them otherwise.
Using markers with a built in erase is very handy.
The Silly Selfies Quiet Book makes a wonderful gift too. You can give it with just one black marker or a whole set of colors.
