Adrian will turn 6 this year, so I've bought him one of those activities books with a bit of all, but Daniel is in that point that he wants to do the same that his brother does, but he doesn't know how to do it yet (he will turn 3 in October)
So, I've decided to make him his own activities workbook:
We only need the printed files, the binder, covers and a beautiful paper to act as cover, I've used gift wrapping paper.
If you don't have a binder you may go to a copy store, I bought this one years ago in the Lidl store, and I think that I will use it a lot in the future.
We cut the gift wrapping paper with a cutter at the same size that the covers.
And die-cut the sheets and the cover, I should advice you that when cutting the wrapping paper, it will be better to put it between other sheets, it's so thin that may bend and it would not be well cut.
Then we place the cardboard at the end, the wrapping paper and the protector to cover and we may bind it.
And voilà, activities workbook finished:
As Daniel is preschooler, I have just added drawings to paint, but if you want to make a custom book, this may serve you as a base, you just have to look for printables adapted to your kids ages.
For instance, I've found some interesting free printables here:
- All Kids Network
- Jump Start
And for those who are learning English:
- British Council
