Make Your Own Educational Dry Erase Activity Book

This post likely contains affiliate links which may earn me commissions should you click through them and take certain actions.

I originally got the idea of making a dry erase book from my tot as I scoured the web for dry-erase activity sets to help with home preschool work.  I found some sites showing some good ideas about making your own by printing worksheets from the many available sources online, which I began to do until I came across some other exciting and inexpensive ideas.  Here’s a list of supplies and other inexpensive ways to create your tot’s dry erase activity book.

I love that I can find various printables in themes I wish to discuss, including holidays, in our home preschool work.  But, to be honest, I don’t like using all the ink in my printer to essentially print out coloring books.  On a trip to Dollar Tree several months ago, I came across educational activity work books with tear out sheets – the first sets were Sesame Street and some basic books.  One a more recent trip to Dollar Tree, I score Mickey Mouse books (pictured here)

How to make your own educational dry erase activity book:

Pick up some educational workbooks that are perforated for tearing out the sheets.  Often, you can find fabulous workbooks at the Dollar Tree!

Pick up some heavy weight sheet protectors – you want the super smooth kind because the cheap rough ones will give you a work out trying to wipe off the dry erase crayons!

Tear out your pages and place a single page into a page protector (if you’re using internet printouts that are single-sided, place 2 pages in one protector front and back).  Grab a binder that’s large enough to hold all your printouts or tear sheets (mine pictured isn’t large enough) and don’t forget your Crayola Dry Erase Crayons (bright)!
