Here’s part 2 of the Busy Bag Swap party activities! Logan has been having a blast playing with his busy bags all weekend long, but I’ve been rationing them out to him so he won’t get bored of them too fast. They have to last until the next big Busy Bag Swap! Part 3 and a party recap post coming soon.
11. Kimberly crafted up some feet shaped foam shapes for paper clip color matching. The kiddos can clip the paper clips to the matching foam feet.
12. Destiny made tearing paper busy bags. Toddlers can tear pieces of paper from the pre-cut strips and glue down to a larger paper.
13. This lacing plastic shapes activity came from Annie. The little ones can lace the big plastic shapes on the string. Parents of older children can call out certain shapes or color sequences to make this a bit more challenging.
14. Jennifer made popsicle stick puzzle busy bags. Toddlers can use the laminated photo as a guide to build their popsicle stick puzzle.
15. Nicole created dalmatian play dough mats and homemade play dough, using Making Learning Fun’s printable. Toddlers can shape the play dough into spots and place on the laminated dog mat.
16. I crafted up some clothesline busy bags, using Money Saving Mom’s tutorial. The kiddos can “wash” their clothes in a little bucket and hang them to dry, match the colors or hang in different sequences using the included clothespins and string.
17. Holly created i spy bottle activities, similiar to My Raina Sunshine. Toddlers can search for different objects hidden in a bottle full of rice, listed on the laminated card attached.
18. Katie made bead matching game busy bags. Her instructions say to: “Sort out beads by shape and/or color. Tie a knot or bend in the pipe cleaner to prevent beads from falling off. String different beads on pipe cleaner. Use different colors or different sizes and create different patterns. Put a bead for each one used on the pipe cleaner in the bag for child to use to match when recreating”.
19. Kelly made clothespin number wheel busy bags. Kids can match the number written on the clothespins to the number of dots there are on the wheel.
20. Erin made rainbow bright color matching busy bags. Tots can match the different colored jewels to the corresponding pieces of felt.
A huge thank you to our Busy Bag Swap Party sponsors:
