Quiet/Travel Activity Book
Pages 1-6 - J loves the hidden picture books and I love that Highlights lets you print them off for free HERE. I just printed about 6 off, cut out the picture and list of items to find, and taped them onto a blank sheet of paper back to back, and ran them through my laminator. Add some dry erase markers and J can do them over and over again.
Page 7-10 - These sheets Came from J's teacher and I just needed to laminate them. Now she can learn/practice drawing a castle, house, dog, and car. Again with some dry erase markers J can do them over and over.
Page 11 - I also got this idea from a worksheet J's teacher gave her for numbers so I went into picnik and made my own you can get a copy Here and Here. I printed the set of fish with the numbers on a magnetic sheet (HP magnetic paper) then printed the second set with the dots on regular paper. I then traced (to darken outline), cut out, and laminated the dotted fish and then cut them out again and added a small magnet to the back of each fish. Now she can count the dots and match it to the number (they are not color coated as you can see, my daughter wouldn't learn her numbers if they were)
Cat and Dog Here and Here or/and Boat and Train Here and Here this time I printed the black outlined shapes onto magnetic sheet paper, I then cut out and laminated the colored shapes, cut them out again and added a small magnet to the back of each one. Now she can use the shapes to make the figures shown.
I am still thinking of more ideas for the book if you have any please let me know I would love to hear them.
I three hole punched all the laminated sheets, slid the magnetic sheets into a clear sleeve, added some dry erase markers into a binder pencil holder I had on hand and put everything into a binder I also had on hand. I just keep the cookie sheet with it for the paper dolls and I also have her pull out the magnetic sheets (shape and fish) and put those on the cookie sheet for extra magneticness (I know that's not a word but its late and I need to finish so I can go to bed ;) thank you all for reading I hope I inspired you to make a fun travel book. Please link up if you do I would love to see your ideas.
