How does the DIY Busy Binder provide learning opportunities during the summer?
Car rides can be tedious and frustrating for both parents and children. While you want to keep children entertained, screen time for several hours can be unhealthy. By creating busy bags to go in your binder, you create a fun and informative activity to occupy children on the road. These bags allow children to practice counting, fine motor skills, language, and dramatic play all while enjoying their favorite characters. You can even play the audio books in the car as you drive.
Why is it important to make DIY Busy Binders for children?
DIY Busy Binders are an interactive and educational activity to keep children learning in the summer. Many children suffer from learning loss (also known as the "summer slide") over summer break due to reduced educational opportunities. It is important that you provide learning resources for children and allow them to practice the skills they learned over the school year.
