Making your own busy bags can save SOOO much money and frustration! If you have a toddler or preschooler who you have to take with you to the doctor’s, ballet class, or homeschool group and they need to be kept occupied, then busy bags are the answer!
I tried to find 10 busy bags that I already had the supplies for, but had not had the time to create,yet. I do use the zippered pencil pouches that fit into 3-ring binder on a jumbo ring for on the go. These are great for in the car or when we have to go somewhere unexpected. I am going to start childcare for a local CC group next week and wanted to switch out our busy bags so Lil’ Red would have something new to explore if he got bored with the kids or the selection of toys.
So a few of the items are store-bought (unless you already have them on hand like I do) like beads, felt, stickers, etc. Most families with young children already have a majority of these supplies lying around not really being put to good use. So it’s time to grab some supplies and make some cute and quick activities for your little one. Use my 10 picks or view the links at the bottom for other ideas.
