Cereal Box "Workbook"

It seems crazy to me, but my girls love workbooks.  One daughter even asked for a workbook for Christmas (she got it and loved it)!  So, I had this idea to reuse packaging to make a special "workbook" for them.

You need:
Packages (from foods, toys, etc.)
Hole punch
Metal rings

1)  Save and cut panels from various packages.  Hole punch and clip together with metal rings.


2)  Use the "workbook" to search for letters, colors, shapes, or words.  We searched for each letter in our names.  The blank sides can be used for writing and drawing.

It's not the most beautiful workbook, but it's a fun way to reuse some packages and expose your child to environmental print!

That's a darn good idea! I'm definitely trying this one.

There are so many sites on the internet that you can print preschool "work pages" that I can see printing and adding pages to this kind of workbook. You could also put the printed pages in page protectors and then let you child write on the plastic protectors with washable markers or dry erase markers so that the work book would be reuseable. I think my kids would love choosing their own cereal box cover. Thanks for the neat ideas!
