Today I am kicking off The A-Z of Busy Bags series with a DIY, re-usable A-Z sticker book busy bag!
To make this book I have used:
- White paper
- Laminating sheets
- Foam alphabet stickers
- Foam picture stickers
I folded a piece of paper as shown in the image and added the letters. Then made a copy of all the letters.
After I copied the letters I pulled the foam letters carefully and stuck them on the bag to re-use it again.
Then I laminated all the cut letter cards, punched holes in and added them to a keyring.
The idea is that your child will find the right foam sticker and stick it on the right letter. You can have picture foam stickers and match beginning sounds to letters too. (We had some stickers that fit, it is not for all letters.)
When pulled off carefully, these stickers can be used over and over again!
Another good learning opportunity that presents itself here, apart from visual discrimination, letter knowledge and beginning sound recognition, is alphabet order. Each letter has its place.
You can even use this book to spell and write CVC words.
It is perfect to pop into a bag in the car for using during travel or waiting times, thus making this the perfect busy bag activity for kindergartners or older kids!
Remember to check back in tomorrow to see a busy bag with the letter B!

Where did you get the bag to put the activities in? They look like the perfect size, see through and colorful¡

It is actually stationery bags that I found at a local store here in South Africa.
