I love creating busy book activities for my daughters.
It’s probably one of my most favorite things to do.
I also really enjoy hearing that you love our activity binders and my favorite is when you send me images of your littles learning with them!
Thank you! 🙂

Adhesive Sticky Velcro Dots (optional)
How to put together and create velcro learning activities
Here are the steps I took to create our winter busy book:
Laminating the pieces is optional but I recommend it.
Cut each of the pieces out once you have or have not laminated the pages.
Add the sheets that do not need to be laminated into sheet protectors within your 3 ring binder.
Then, you are ready to match the pieces into the busy book.
Learn through play with this quiet busy book!
I have also provided a video of how I put our busy book together for your viewing abilities. 🙂
Here is a video I made of our Winter Busy Book Printable.
Learning folder printables quiet book ideas for toddlers and preschoolers
Here are some fun ideas you can try as a fun toddler activity binder game.
Without even cutting the pieces you can point to the different colored mittens if you are showing this busy book to your toddler.
You can also count from 1 to 5 and show them how each number looks.
Visually seeing these activities will help them for future learning about what each basiic skill is about more in depth.
This is also a wonderful quiet book to take on the go, to a restaurant, on vacation or to just use as is right at home.
Preschoolers can practice in a little bit more of an advanced strategy.
They can do all toddlers work on and more.
Your preschooler can match the different pieces and differentiate which goes where.
He or she might even be able to count them while matching them.
Preschoolers may know the alphabet song, so learning to trace the letter A or number 1 may be fun if you add a qtip or add pom poms to cover the letter’s and numbers.
What other fun ways can you think of using this winter busy book activity binder?
Winter Quiet Book ideas for Kindergarten
5 and 6 year olds can practice all that toddlers and preschoolers practice and more.
Here are some ideas with the mittens printable sheets:
Use the color mittens worksheet to write down each color on a sheet of paper.
Print out double of the mitten sheets, cut them, turn them over and play a game of find the color matches.
Print, cut and lay out a different amount of mittens on the table. Count them and write out the number you counted.
Do you own cube links? Use the b&w sheet of mittens and write a number on the mittens. Use cube links to attach how many numbers are on the mitten and build upwards.
What other ways can you think of using these? So many fun improvisational ways other than creating a busy book!
Get creative and have fun learning about the basic skills of early learning!
Happy Learning!! 🙂
