For those of you who don't know, a busy book (or quiet book) is a homemade book where each page or two-page spread is designed to be an activity.
Earlier in the fall I made several pages, and then abandoned the project for a while. These are the pages I had finished before:
- Shapes Page
- Caterpillar Patterns and Numbers Page
- Phonics Pockets Page
- Underwater Bead Maze Page
- Apple Tree Page
- Chalkboard Two-Page Spread
Busy Book / Quiet Book Fasteners
For this page I bought several types of fasteners at a craft store. I attached straps to the three that didn't come with one and then attached them to the page. Done. I'm hoping this one will interest the children, but I'm afraid that several of these will still be too hard for now.
