Today we are going to show you how we upcycled one of our workbooks in 3 different ways. Repurposing books or book pages is another of material prompts for #junkplay challenge and we used what we already had at home.
You can use our ideas as an inspiration since you probably don’t have exactly the same workbook. And enjoy the play!
As you can see from the image, our toddler loves to color and scribble over her workbook pages. Still, most of the pages in this little workbook were intact. We used Pepa the Pig workbook which includes inside 2 short cartoon stories, a bunch of worksheets and 2 games. Nice mix of things to keep kids occupied.
Things we used for all of these ideas we are going to show here are scissors and a laminator (affiliate).
IDEA #1 – turning stories to busy bags
IDEA #2 – turning pictures to kid’s room decoration
There were several pictures inside the workbook we used. Nice, full-color pictures. So, I decided to keep them as they are. We just cut them out of the workbook, laminated them (we didn’t have any picture frames we could use on hand), added putty tabs (affiliate) on the back and stick them on a wall in children’s room. For one we used painter’s tape to make a frame. You could probably use washi or masking tape to make a frame if you wish.
IDEA #3 – PRESERVING BOARD GAMES
