Toddler Activities---Little Lapbooks Jungle Puzzle

When I was teaching a preschool co-op this past fall, I came up with a toddler-sized lapbook that works well for little hands. Ours was based on the song, "Who is the King of the Jungle?" I wish I had pictures to show you, but the book is MIA at the moment. We had a lapbook component or activity on each flap. The kids love having their own little books.

Using that idea as a springboard, I've created a jungle puzzle book using the little lapbook format. This would work well as a workbox activity or activity bag activity for younger children.

Feel free to print away and use at home! I'll be coming up with some more little lapbook ideas in the upcoming weeks. If you use this format for a project, I'd love to see it and feature it here.

Oh WOW I love the little trick for folding it up for little hands. Making it out of a folder makes it way more sturdy too so kids can look at it over and over.

PS: I did download the trial and am loving it! Brad has already consented to getting it for me for our 9th anniversary next month. There is a little tool that takes away your blemishes. How cool, with just a little click not like having to clone like I did before. Did I mention I had the very first version of PSE on my computer. So by my standards your version 4 was lightyears ahead of mine.
