This Construction truck Busy Book includes 5 or 10 double-sided, laminated (dry-erase) activity pages (10 or 20 activities!), a dry-erase marker or crayon with a pom-pom eraser, a felt square eraser, a canvas case for storing parts (like dry-erase marker, dice and game pieces) and directions for use all in a 3-ring binder with a personalized cover. Since the pages are laminated, your child can complete the activities over and over again with the provided dry-erase marker and easily wipe away mistakes as they learn new skills!
Take a Busy Book with you when you're on the move or sit and play games when you're stuck in the house. This all-inclusive book can go to the doctor's office, a restaurant, church or even on a long car trip/airplane flight and keep your little one quiet and busy while building skills they'll need for school.
⭐️ Busy Books make great birthday presents, big sibling gifts, summer bridge activities and can go virtually anywhere with you and be an instant source of quiet entertainment! Use them for toddler/preschooler/kindergartener quiet time in the afternoons too!
🍏 These books are made by me, a preschool teacher/director turned SAHM, to create an educational but fun solution to troubles during downtime. Kids are NOT meant to sit still and be quiet without a distraction and we all know we shouldn't be giving them electronics ALL THE TIME. So, here is the perfect solution. A book filled with their favorite characters, fun and colorful hands-on games, challenging pages that stimulate the brain instead of the adrenaline (like video games) and activities that the whole family can be involved in and enjoy.
🍏 Books are customized by skill level and age when you order, but here are some of the activities that can be included in this book:
🚧 personalized name tracing page
🚧 self-portrait page
🚧 cards to spell out your name one letter at a time
🚧 creative patterning cards using 3 pictures
🚧 tracing left to right
🚧 number line up puzzle 11-20 (helps with counting beginning with a # other than 1 and number recognition of double digit numbers; can be substituted with any number grouping 1-5, 1-10, skip counting, etc)
🚧 numbers 1-20 trace
🚧 a roll and color dice game (encourages beginning adding skills, counting and number identification- all while teaching patience and playing fair)
🚧 lacing (a GREAT fine motor muscle builder)
🚧 creative drawing "what's in the truck?"
🚧 tracing upper and lowercase letters A-Z
🚧 beginning letter sounds
🚧 drawing using symmetry
🚧 size sort small, medium, large
🚧 4-part puzzles
🚧 alphabet maze
🚧 color matching
