Busy Binder Activities

Here is a look at everything included in the Sweet Treats Busy Binder.

The set includes a cover page you can add to your binder if you choose to bind them. I have used both binders and Proclick binding spines to bind our busy binders over the years. Both work great.

This popsicle sound match matches capital letters, lowercase letters, and picture/sounds together to form a whole popsicle. Children will work to put the popsicles together to form a letter popsicle. All 26 letters of the alphabet are represented. You can start out with a few letters/pieces if presenting them all would be too overwhelming.

Match Capital letters, lowercase letters, and beginning sound picture cards together to form a popsicle using this sweet treats themed activity mat.


Children will practice matching sweet treat pictures to the shadow with this fun visual discrimination shadow matching activity.

You can't have a sweet treats theme without including gumballs. This Gumball shapes activity is for matching 6 of the most basic 2D shapes to their outline. Each shape looks like a gumball and children will pick a gumball shape and match it to the shape inside the gumball machine. This activity is very similar to our gumball colors activity found in our color and shape busy binder.

Shape matching is a valuable skill for preschoolers to practice. This sweet treats themed shape matching activity is great for preschool!


The Boxing Up Donuts activity is an interactive activity for practicing number recognition, counting, and one-one-correspondence. Children will pick a number, identify the number, and then use the donuts to count out the corresponding number of donuts in the box.

I scream. You scream. We all scream for Ice Cream. This ice cream patterns activity will have children practicing making ABC, AB, AAB, and ABB patterns using different colored ice cream. Children will pick their colors from the variety of colors and work to create the different patterns on top of the corresponding ice cream cone.

This CVC and CVCe cupcakes activity will help children practice differentiating between those short and long vowel sounds. Students will pick a cupcake, say the word on the cupcake, and determine if the vowel is long or short and then place it on the correct cupcake stand.

Differentiating between short and long vowel sounds can be tricky for kindergarten aged students. This CVC and CVCe sorting activity from our Sweet Treats Busy Activity binder will give children extra practice identifying whether the vowel is long or short and they will have the opportunity to practice reading both CVC and CVCe words.


Sweet Treats Shape Tracing is a simple shape tracing activity that you can use with your kids to practice tracing and drawing shapes. Laminate it and use a dry erase marker and you are set for continued shape drawing practice.

This tracing worksheet from our Sweet Treats Busy Binder set is one that you can use again and again to encourage young children to practice proper shape formation and for them to practice drawing some of the most basic shapes like circles, squares, rectangles and more. Laminate it for repeated use.


Lastly, this Ice Cream Syllables is a sweet (see what I did there) way of practicing identifying and counting syllables in simple words. Kids will pick an ice cream picture card, say the word and count the total syllables in the word and then place it on top of the correct ice cream cone.

Counting syllables in words is one of the more harder concepts for younger learners to grasp. This Ice Cream Syllable Counting activity is fun and interactive and kids will want to practice counting their syllables with this sweet little activity. Grab it and nine other sweet treats themed learning activities in our busy binder set.


We are a refined sugar free family due to a severe refined sugar intolerance so my kids are super excited to dive into these sweet treat activities as we are not able to enjoy them for real.
