I use page protectors to make my children's activity pages, and even their school books, reusable.
As many of you know, I have 5 kids very close in age and we home school. But this tip is useful even if you don't home school.
This year I purchased several pieces of curriculum from The Critical Thinking Co. I love their products! But their awesome full colour workbooks aren't cheap, and I may need to use each one five times in the next 5 years!
I solved the problem by cutting the binding off each book and hole punching the pages to fit in a binder. Each day, my kids do their worksheets in a plastic page protector using a dry erase marker or dry erase crayon. I check their work, we erase it, and then I remove that page protector and slip tomorrow's page in.
To cut the binding off the book I used a retractable craft knife, a ruler, and some patience. But I've heard that copy shops can sometimes cut bindings off books for a small fee.
This tip could be used for books of mazes, connect-the-dots, logic puzzles, or free activity sheets printed off the Internet.
