With summer in full swing, we are not doing full Tot School. I still hope to do an official Tot School post every other week, but thought I would do something different this week.
I have created some fun Busy Bags for Super Tot and thought I would share them with you. They are perfect for car or plane trips, Dr.'s visits, or any other time you want a simple To Go Activity.
I've been looking for basic, clear front pencil cases for a few months and have been unable to find them. I wanted the clear front so they would be more appealing to Super Tot. I finally found these for $1/ea at Walmart. They were back with their art supplies, rather than in the Back To School section. I was thrilled to find them and purchased 12. They are perfect for our Toddler Busy Bags!
These Busy Bags are easy to grab and take all or just a few. They will easily fit into a binder, diaper bag or tote. I have 11 made up so far and will be doing an I Spy bag for the 12th. Here are my current Busy Bags:
Family Memory / matching game:
Small notebook, stickers & colored pencils:
Lacing cards w/ laces:
Small locker-size white board, marker & eraser:
Paint swatches w/ matching paper clips:
Small pegboards w/ pegs:
Clothes pin shape matching:
Lauri foam disc puzzles:
(these are foam fish w/ sorting mats I made to sort by color & number)
I am using a little plastic shoebox to store the Busy Bags when we are not using them.
