Feature Friday - Dry Erase Quiet Book

When I was out of town a couple of weeks ago Autie from iCandy Handmade did an awesome guest post HERE for a dry erase quiet book.  Remember?

I was really anxious to make one myself, so I finally put one together for Rex yesterday.  Here it is!

He was really exited to see a coloring page of himself.  I used Picnik for it (playing around with the following effects: pencil sketch, posterize, cross process, doodle with white selected to color over some of the unneeded dark areas, and dual something....if anyone needs more specific info on that I can provide it in another tutorial).

Baden also got a page.

Since I was making mine to be a church quiet book, I used the Nativity preschool pack from HERE.  If you haven't checked our her other preschool printables you need to.  They are HERE.

On another note, I bought the dry erase crayons but make sure you're using the pages in a binder and not using them loosely.  Rex had taken one page out and he colored on it and then flipped it over.  The color was all over his pants.  It did wash out, but it was everywhere.  Also, they are harder to wipe off than regular dry erase markers.  I think I like the markers better.  Just a tip.

Thanks again for the great idea Autie!  And thank you for reading.
