I love this number train quiet book page.  I originally made a small train with numbers 1 to 5 as a gift for a friend's little train loving son.  However, both J and K wanted to play with it, so of course, I had to make them a bigger one.

Each train car is one piece of colored felt with two wheels hot glued on.  I then adhered some felt number stickers on.  On the back of each train car is a velcro dot.  The train engine, caboose, and train tracks were cut free hand and sewn down.  When all the train cars are removed, you can see where I hot glued the velcro dots to the page.

The great thing about this page is that the boys can put the train cars in order from 1 to 10 or in the reverse order from 10 to 1.  I have seen J do it both ways, whereas K kind of sticks the train cars wherever.  At least K still identifies the numbers before putting them on the train tracks!
