I am finishing up this week with my road busy book pages. This is a great kids activity that any child will love. If you have missed any of the busy book pages this week be sure to catch up with:
I will be finishing up the series with more pages and how to bring the entire thing together next week so y’all stay tuned. You can also see lots more quick and easy kids activities at the bottom of this post for Craft Lightning week.
Supplies needed to make your own road busy book pages:
Some links may be affiliate links which means a portion of your purchase will go to support this site.
- 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
First of all, 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. 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!
