Make these road-themed busy book pages for a busy book! This craft is super simple and takes just 15 minutes to make one of these pages. There are plenty more felt pages below to add to your toddler’s quiet book!
This is a great craft that any child will love. Make this busy book page and add it the the rest of the pages below:
After you’ve completed all of the felt pages, assemble the busy book and get ready for your next road trip!
This is Craft Lightning week and crafts are supposed to take 15 minutes or less. I believe these pages INDIVIDUALLY are 15 minutes or less crafts. However I combined them into one post to keep things organized.
You can also see lots more quick and easy kids activities at the bottom of this post for Craft Lightning week.
How to Make a Road Busy Book Page
Supplies needed to make your own road busy book pages:
Some links may be affiliate links.
- Stiff felt sheet (I used these large sheets cut in half)
- Felt scraps (I bought this bag of felt scraps to make all of my busy books) (I used some large pieces of gray for these pages)
- Road pattern page 1 (print by clicking here)
- Road pattern page 2 (print by clicking here)
- White paint pen
- Sewing machine
- Toy Car
To make your road busy book pages, begin by cutting your pattern pieces from the felt.
You will need to paint “STOP” on the sign. Use a paint pen and go over it several times until you like the look. Set aside to dry completely.
I made one mistake on my pattern and did not include a bottom for the car pouch. Just cut one to size as shown below. Also a few notes on the pouch, I sized it to fit most toy cars but your car might be larger or smaller. You might want to do some measurements before getting started on this project.
Sew the Velcro to the pouch piece and the stiff felt sheet.
Sew the pouch together as shown below.
Pin everything into place on your busy book page.
Sew on all of your elements.
Give the road busy book pages a test drive with a toy car.
These two pages are meant to be sewn into a busy book as shown below where they are on opposite pages. That way the child can drive their car from one page to another.
Now you have two more pages for your busy book! We will finish this entire series up next week and you can complete a fun quiet book for a baby or toddler in your life. Add these road busy book pages to your to do list today!

These turned out great! I love the car pocket!
The book pages are a great idea and they look so cute! I might make some for my boy, even if he’s 6… but this will be a nice occupation when we travel 🙂
So cute! I love quiet pages!
This is so cute, my son would love this! Definitely going to give it a try!
Angie, what an adorable idea! I love it 🙂 It is easy to envision a little tyke making car sounds and driving across those pages. Thanks for sharing it with us and thank you, too, for teaching me something new. I had never heard of Paint Pens before. What a nifty little tool!
I never thought I would have been able to put something together like this… But this looks like something even I can do! Thank you for sharing! – Jerusha, ThePositiveYear.com
What a cute busy book page. My toddler would love these. He’s kind of obsessed with cars. Pinning so I can make it for him.
Love the busy book. I’m always looking for portable little activities that we can take with the kids!
These pages look great! I like how you even included a car pocket – no more forgetting the car or car getting lost. 🙂
These are fantastic! I plan on making a busy book sometime soon and this definitely makes me feel inspired! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Pinned & Shared. I had started a blanket similar. The book is adorable. Thanks for sharing at the Inspiration Spotlight party.
