Photo Clutch Dry Erase Quiet Book

It seems like there have been several occasions lately where I have been out with friends or with my own family and have watched as kids have been stuck somewhere with nothing to entertain them. I always feel sorry for them! And when it's my own kids, it drives me nuts. So I came up with a solution:You may remember seeing this photo clutch before. I bought it on clearance for just a couple bucks. Now it has been transformed into a little dry-erase quiet book that is just the right size to tuck into my purse.

Here's what the pages look like inside:

I had all these elaborate plans to make things in Photoshop and print them out, but in the end, I just did everything by hand. I think sometimes we fear the imperfections of our own handwriting and sketching. But does it really matter? Not at all! In fact it makes the book all that more unique. I know some of the words are crooked or spaced unevenly. And that's okay.

There are a few sleeves that are still empty. I was too excited to share this idea to wait until I finished them. But some of the ideas I have for them are matching games, word search, and connect-the-dots.

If you don't draw, you could easily find clip art that would work.

I have made a lot of quiet books in my day, but this one was definitely the easiest to put together. It only took a couple of hours. And next time I am out somewhere with a bored kid, I can't wait to whip this bad boy out! Bye bye, boredom!
