A few weeks ago I got all these at a yard sale for only $3. I'm so excited about them. You can't even buy one of these Family Home Evening Books for less than $6-7. Two of them are even color, so I just have to cut out and laminate.
I some dry erase quiet books a while back. I never got around to making them. So I was super excited when I saw these busy books. I knew right away what I would do with them. My son loves mazes and dot-to-dots, but he does them too quickly. I tore out the pages and put them in sheet protectors and bought some dry erase crayons.
The dry erase crayons cane with a little mitt. I cut a strip of velcro.
And sewed it inside the top of the mitt to make a little bag for the crayons to fit in.
Here it is all put together. One more thing to put in my Church Bag to help keep the kids quiet.
The kids love it.
I was a bit skeptical about they dry erase crayons. I'd never used them before, but they work great. They wipe off completely, while not erasing accidentally as the kids are drawing. My 2 year old got some crayon on her shirt and I was worried that it would stain, but I just put a little stain stick on it and it washed right out.
