When it comes to busy books, I've always had mixed feelings. The pages don't all seem age appropriate at the same time. The activities range from simple flip book pages to difficult activities like tying bows. And they are very time consuming to make. But, I really like the idea behind them.
So I tried to simplify the idea. I made a busy book with a twist. It is a felt book, where the covers can double as felt boards. And the pages are Ziploc bags. So they can be filled and exchanged.
Then I made some simple activities. To fill the pages.
The activities don't have to be hand made, you can fill the book with anything your child likes. But, I did include some simplistic templates I made. And there will be more to come.
