I created this Pat-a-Cake lapbook when my youngest son was a toddler. He wanted some school to do (just like big brother), and he was thrilled to have something of his own.

This is a simple set of printables designed for a toddler or preschooler. Have fun with the rhymes and songs–that’s the best part.

You can use these Pat-a-Cake printables as you desire in a blank board book, in a lapbook, or on cardstock in a folder.
