Time to switch out the Fall Busy Book for the Winter Themed Busy book! More patterns, counting, numbers, spatial reasoning, and building of fine motor skills.
Snowflakes, hot chocolate, warm mittens, and happy snowmen. (I love Kate Hadfield’s designs!)
Not only that, my kids are still really enjoying these busy books. They pull them out almost daily.
My preschooler and kindergartener like to work on these in the morning while I am doing our read alouds for the day.
How to Assemble the Winter Busy Book:
This project is a little prep work up front, but the result is definitely worth it! After you print the pages you will need to laminate them, and cut them in half.
Then you will need to cut out the pieces on the pages that say ‘cut’. (These will be the moveable pieces that your child will attach to the pages.)
Attach the pieces, using clear velcro. (Don’t skimp on the velcro, or the book won’t withstand multiple uses.)
Lastly, put it together in a half 3-ring binder or have it bound at a local print shop. (Mine cost me about $3 to have bound.)
- Purchase, download, and print the ‘Printable Winter Busy Book‘
- Laminate the pages
- Cut the pieces from the “cut” pages
- Velcro the cut pieces to the coordinating page using clear velcro
- Insert the pages into a small, half page binder OR have it bound.
