Day 23 – January 23
Have you ever wish you had an activity to keep your toddler or preschooler out of trouble, or keep them entertained long enough for you to get a few things done? If so, you are going to love my discovery . . . . busy bags. The basic premise is that you have a little bag with a small activity. It should be easy to put together, not expensive, and not require lots of setup or cleanup. I found out about this from my parents’ group. Someone scheduled a busy bag trade, so everyone is going to bring 15 bags of one activity. (I’m bringing this one.) Then, we’ll trade and each person will go away with 15 different busy bags. I have no idea why I never thought of this before. Just think of how much easier it could potentially be to go to a restaurant, or to the doctors office, or go grocery shopping? Really, this is fantastic.
To get you started, here are a few links with some busy bag ideas. If you are on pinterest, you’ll find tons of ideas there, or, you can just Google “busy bag”.
