When we go to restaurants, we are those parents who bring in two bags of toys - one for each kid. They are all quiet toys, but other than the books, they honestly don't keep them busy for that long. When I found this idea, I thought it would be fantastic! Then I thought - well, what's the difference between this and a colouring book with activities? But I created them anyways. It was super easy. I got the binders again of Craigslist (1 inch) and I bought one for each child so they don't have to share and they can be personalized to the development of each child.
Then I put the page protectors into the binders and started to fill up the binders. All I need now is some dry erase markers/crayons and we'll be set for
And for a reference, here are some of the websites that I used to print from:Kids Learning Station
If you just type "Preschool Printables" (or toddler, kindergarten, etc.) into Google, you will get many more options!
I was originally thinking "What's the difference between this and a colouring book?". I realize the difference now. This can be adjusted to the individual child, I can keep the binder forever and I'm not just wasting money/paper for a couple pages. Also, I am saving trees because the kids can do these pages over and over again. And they will. We have yet to go out to try these, but I will let you know how they work when we do!
