Busy Book Printables – Travel Activities for Kids

Earlier this summer, I debuted a new printable series here on Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes. The series has wrapped for this summer, so I’m coming at you today with a roundup of all the printables included in the Busy Book Series. These sheets can be printed out to make a booklet full of travel activities for kids. Keep your little ones or not-so-little ones entertained anytime you’re traveling, waiting, or just need a minute alone.

What is a Busy Book?

If you’ve been following along all summer, then you already know. If not, here you go! This summer, I released printables each week that can be put together in a mini binder to create a Busy Book, which will provide hours and hours of entertainment for your little ones while you travel this summer and beyond!

These travel activities for kids include coloring pages, games, and more! Each printable fits perfectly in a mini binder or an A5 planner! I chose to make everything in this series A5 size so you could easily (and cheaply) purchase mini binders for your children!

You can find mini binders pretty much anywhere binders are sold. My favorites are from the Target Dollar Spot and Amazon.

Busy Book Series:

This series is made up of five printables. One coloring page and four games.

Floral Coloring Page: Free Printable Insert - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Floral Coloring Page:

Get their creative juices flowing with a coloring page! Markers, crayons, colored pencils, or paint – all are great options for filling in the pretty page. If you’re actively traveling, I might avoid paint. That could get super messy!

Dots & Boxes Game – Free Printable Insert

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another Busy Book printable! Say hello to the dots and boxes game printable freebie! While making this printable, I discovered that this game is also called Pigs in a Pen, Dot to Dot, Squares, and much, much more! Whatever you like to call it, it’s fun, easy to play, and can get intense if you play with the right people!

Dots & Boxes Game - Free Printable Insert - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

If you’re unfamiliar with Dots & Boxes, here is how you play according to Wikipedia:

“Starting with an empty grid of dots, two players take turns adding a single horizontal or vertical line between two unjoined adjacent dots. The player who completes the fourth side of a 1×1 box earns one point and takes another turn. (A point is typically recorded by placing a mark that identifies the player in the box, such as an initial.) The game ends when no more lines can be placed. The winner is the player with the most points.”

Hello, Planners!

As I mentioned last week, summer is well on its way! Prepare to make 2018 the best summer yet with my latest printable freebie, a personal-size summer bucket list! Grab your sunscreen and sunglasses, and let’s have some fun!

This personal-size summer bucket list insert is packed with outdoor and indoor activities. If it happens to rain on the day you plan to go to the beach, you can always pick up a book, cuddle up on the couch, and work on checking the reading item off your list! 🙂

This summer, I’m definitely going to check off reading five books, hosting a movie night, and planning a beach day! I went blueberry picking last weekend, so I’ve already checked fruit picking off my list! What’s activities are on your summer bucket list?

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017

Hello, hello!

August isn’t QUITE over yet, so I have just enough time to sneak in my POPSUGAR Must Have review for the month!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

POPSUGAR celebrated their 5th anniversary this month, so this box is special to them and has a slightly celebratory theme!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box contents:

  • Pastel – Cheers Lacquered Tray
  • First Aid Beauty – 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask
  • Dogeared – Friendship Bracelet with Small Open Heart
  • Meri Meri – Gold Glitter Candles
  • Fringe Studio – Free Spirit Journal
  • Goodie Girl Cookies – Chocolate Chunk
  • Shoptiques.com – $25 Gift Card

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Pastel – Cheers Lacquered Tray – Retail Value $28

How adorable is this tray?! It reminds me a little of Kate Spade. I can see it on the classiest of bar carts or at a New Year’s Eve party!

I don’t know how I’m going to use this tray yet, but I know I will! It’s way too cute to go unused!! <3

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

First Aid Beauty – 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask – Retail Value $38

I’m always a little wary of face masks because of my sensitive skin. Surprisingly enough, this mask agrees with me! So far I’ve used it once and plan on using it again tonight!

The instructions say the mask can be used up to three times a week. Just to be on the safe side, I’m only going to use it one or two.

The mask is way thicker than I expected it to be. The gel texture is nice though. Very refreshing! It also has a slightly tingly sensation to it that I quite enjoy!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Dogeared – Friendship Bracelet with Small Open Heart – Retail Value $34

This little bracelet is just darling. I don’t wear this type of jewelry too often though, so I’m going to save this cutie to give as a gift!

I’ve given POPSUGAR items as gifts in the past, and my friends always LOVE them!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Meri Meri – Gold Glitter Candles – Retail Value $7.50

I think these might just be the prettiest birthday candles I’ve ever seen!

I turn 24 this year and these beauties are definitely going to be on top of my cake!! 🙂

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Fringe Studio – Free Spirit Journal – Retail Value $16

If you know much about me, then you know that I love a good notebook! I have an extensive collection of May Designs and Rifle Paper Co. notebooks on my shelf right now! I am more than happy to add this rose gold beauty to the bunch!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Look at the gorgeous rose gold pages! <3

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Goodie Girl Cookies – Chocolate Chunk – Retail Value $2.95

You all know how much I love a good snack!

I devoured these bad boys (all eight of them) during the Game of Thrones series finale! I dipped them in some milk and went to town while rooting for Dany and Jon! 😉

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Shoptiques.com – $25 Gift Card

I don’t typically use the gift cards that come in my POPSUGAR box. However, this month I actually am! Shoptiques is a website that sells merchandise from thousands of boutiques across thousands of cities.

Right now, I have a Lilly Pulitzer tumbler and some wooden cutlery in my cart. I’ll be pulling the trigger on that purchase as soon as I finish this blog post!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The total retail value of the August box is $151.45. That’s not too shabby at all!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the August box?

August Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

August Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello, Planner Friends!

August is right around the corner, so it’s time for my monthly, functional printable release!

August Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

I went with a diamond, slightly geometric theme this month!

I’ve been making functional printables for a little over a year now, so if you’re interested, here’s my August Functional Freebie for 2016! The 2016 and 2017 theme colors are exactly the same, so if you want to use the printables together, they match perfectly.

August Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Before I give you the sticker freebie file, there are a few things I’d like to say.  I spent a lot of time designing and creating this printable, so please be kind when you use it.

  • Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes printables are for personal use only
  • You may not re-sell, re-distribute, or claim this work as your own
  • If you post this on the internet, please give the credit to Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes and link it back to my blog (www.pinkbowstwinkletoes.com)

Enough of the heavy stuff! Now it’s time for the fun!

I’m providing you this printable in both a PNG and PDF file format.  I’ve found that the PNG prints richer colors than the PDF.  It’s up to you which file you use though!

To download the PNG file:

  1. Click on the image above
  2. Click “view full size”
  3. Right click and save image
  4. Open saved file and print
  5. PLAN!!

If you skip step 2 and don’t click the “view full size” button, the image will save in a much smaller format and will print incorrectly.

You can download the PDF version here, PBTT August Functional Sticker Sheet 2017.
