Now that I’ve started coming up with ideas for busy bags, it seems that I can’t stop! They are so easy to think of once you start thinking about what you could slip into a Ziplock and throw in your purse. I posted my first batch of busy bags here, and since then I’ve come up with a few more ideas.
I set up a little weaving CD (idea from this site) with all sorts of different yarn from my stash and a plastic yarn needle. I think that if Clara likes making one this may show up in our summer art this year.
The story stones that I made last fall are perfect of busy bags! I think they would be especially good for creating stories when waiting for food at a restaurant.
I don’t know if I ever posted about this, but I made a few of these last Christmas for my nephews and Clara and they are the perfect “busy bag” for kiddos who like matchbox cars.
