It's been quite a while since I wrote about our busy bags, so this post is a little overdue. Busy bags are bags you can take with you to keep kids entertained, at the doctors, restaurants, wherever needed, or can be used as quiet bags when you need to keep kids entertained at home. We love busy bags and have a box of them we can delve into when need, you can read more about more busy bags here.
Two very popular busy bags that were super simple to make are these two made with pom poms.....
1 - Pom Pom Push Busy Bag
I saved a pot that had sugar sprinkles in it, the hole at the top is just large enough for little fingers to push pom poms into the pot. This was the first busy bag activity I ever made and it kept Champ entertained for so long, that it started a big spree of busy bag making!
2 - Pom Pom Pill Pot Busy Bag
Another super simple busy bag, this time I bought a cheap pill pot box that had lots of individual compartments for storing pills in. Into these compartments I placed a pom pom and then shut all the doors.
Here's the finished busy bag all set to take out and use.
And here is Little Dude pulling open all the little doors, taking the pom poms out, putting them back in again, shutting the doors and so on. Another busy bag that keeps tiny fingers occupied for ages.
Are you a fan of busy bags? I'd love to hear of any ideas for busy bags that you've made.
