How to Create a Preschool Activity Binder
A preschool activity binder is easy to make and is handy when you’d like to keep your young child busy. My preschoolers have also enjoyed having their own morning work to complete alongside their older siblings.
Supplies For your Preschool Binder:
- Three-ring binder
- Three-hole punch
- Regular printer paper
- Sheet Protectors
- Dry erase markers
- Pencil Pouch
- Mini erasers
Organize Your Preschool Activity Binder:
The first step is to decide what divisions you’d like in your preschool activity binder. My suggestion is to start with phonics, letters, shapes, and counting dividers.
Then print the printables you believe your child will enjoy the most. You can always go back and print more worksheets later.
Three-hole punch you want your child to complete put them behind the divider that makes the most sense to you.
You can also slide the worksheets into page protectors. Then give your child a dry erase marker to complete the worksheets. Wipe it off and your child can complete the worksheet again. This is really handy for the letter tracing pages as your preschooler can trace the letters many times without needing to print page after page.
Puzzle pages and matching cards can be kept in pencil pouches so the pieces don’t get lost. This way your child can enjoy the activity again. Also, put a pencil pouch at the front of the binder to store pencils, mini erasers, and dry erase markers.
After you’ve set up your child’s preschool activity binder, your kid will have a busy book to enjoy each day.

Morning Work and a Learning Activities Binder
The preschool activity binder is perfect for your child’s morning work. After breakfast, pull out your child’s activity binder.
If you’re homeschooling older children, you can pull out your child’s learning binder at the same time as you’re pulling out your older children’s school work. Your preschooler will adore having their own work to complete just like the older siblings.
Encourage your kid to pick a language arts activity, a phonics activity, and a math activity to complete each day. You can also have your child complete a letter tracing page before playing with phonics cards and magnetic letters.
The activity binder is a great way to keep your preschooler’s learning activities organized so they always have something fun to complete each day.
