Busy bags and busy books are so much much for younger kids.
Digital products have taken the world by a storm and everyone now has a printer at home, so why not create busy book printables in pdf file format rather than felt.
I’ve previously shared the Christmas themed busy book printable and that was a hit with my kids.
I love the idea of the felt books, but I never got around to learning how to make them, they are time consuming and many times I just gave up!
How easy is it to have this printable page printed out, added to a plastic sleeve and then using it right away with velcro?
My kids love to match pieces together and this is no exception.
Like in this printable, kids will choose a letter balloon, then find the matching lowercase or uppercase letter balloon on the mat and place it to light up the balloons.
It’s fun and enjoyable! Kids relate and they love the graphics too.
New Year Printable Busy Book
This printable pack includes activities to work on letter recognition, shapes, and art.
I like to gather my materials first like dry erase markers, magnetic letters and maybe some counting mini erasers, then I start laminating the pages I’d like my child to use.
I wouldn’t use all the pages at once if the child isn’t ready, for instance, you could begin with the letter matching balloon sheet and then see how they follow, if they struggle with it, introduce an easier activity and so on.
There’s also a cover page included in the free download. I love these fingerprint clipart from G is for Graphics which I have featured in this book.

Why are busy books good for children?
Busy books are a great tool to have on hand if you want to use them on the go with your kids and work on targeted skills for your students. They develop problem solving skills and critical thinking skills.
What’s more, you can even use them as playdough mats to let the kids work on their imagination skills as well as their artistic skills.
Check out this printable page. Have the kids use their fingers to make their own family members show on this New Year’s Poster idea.
The kids will build their family members by using their fingers to fingerpaint each ‘fingerpal’ on the sheet.
