Learning the Letter D Drawing with Sid the Science Kid Quiet Book Page

 

A Sid the Science Kid Quiet Book Page was a given – I *needed* to invent this unique page, fresh to the idea of quiet book pages and patterns online. Why? Well… Kara absolutely LOVES Sid the Science Kid, as do most of the kids I have nannied for previously. IT was needed. The thing, as a parent, that I really like about drawing is that it grows with the child as the child grows. A child capable of holding a crayon or pencil starts with lines and scribbles. This manifests into drawings and colorings. Over time, the child begins writing, and for purposes of a quiet book this can easily turn into the sport of games: hangman, tic-tac-toe, connect the dots, and others.

I started this quiet book for my daughter Kara to carry with her to church. The idea behind the book is that she could sit comfortably beside me and keep herself out of trouble and concentrated on something without distracting everyone and their brother. It works well! Clip a notepad to the clipboard and slide a pen in Sid’s sweatshirt hoodie and we’re good to go!

What I Did Wrong on the Sid the Science Kid Quiet Book Page

The clipboard is a liiiiitle too large, but it works very well; I paid $1.00 for a group of three at Target in the dollar section. Score! I needed the other two for another project anyway. Honestly? This is the only thing I can think of that was “wrong,” so to speak.

Additional quiet books, or variations of this one, may include pouches for more than one writing utensil (this one only holds one thin pen or pencil in Sid’s hoodie sweatshirt). Some may even consider holding a pack of 8 crayons. In our situation, we had so many peices to our book anyway, and Kara is always happy with a pencil…. I figured one should suffice!

His hair was probably the most difficult to cut out and sew on (remember to let it stay “fringy!”) part of the entire Sid the Science Kid quiet book page. Otherwise, the entire page was fairly simple.

 

What I did Right

Kara’s favorite part of the whole book is the onesie shirt of her little brother, Noah, after he grew out of it. Noah has a condition called L1 Syndrome, and when he came home from the hospital I made him this shirt and Kara’s shirt said, “I love an L1.” She LOVES having this in her book; and I now love that when we keep this book forever and ever, we will always have that for them.

Sid is also super super cute! && the editing stitching came out perfectly one this page! This is one of Kara’s favorite pages of the entire alphabet book, and therefore one of my favorites too.
