10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#10. Beads in a Water Bottle |||| Pretty simple activity to put together: an empty water bottle + bag of beads! A loves dropping them in, especially the sound. She only fills up the bottom part before dumping them out again, which she thinks is so fun. I always stay close so these don't end up in her mouth and/or scattered all over the house. Definitely a hit with her!  - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#9. Mini Reversible Felt Toy ||||  Wish I'd gotten a picture of this before A pulled all the pieces apart. She's not ready for creative building but she did enjoy playing with the pieces. It would be tedious cutting them all out, but felt is cheap at least! Photo by emilycake84 | Photobucket - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#8. Pipe Cleaner Toy |||| (another link here) A is nuts for this activity. She has played it every day since we got it. She doesn't understand the color matching yet but loves putting the pipe cleaners in any hole. I think she also really likes the sound the cleaners make tinkling against the metal bottom of the Pringles can. I really like that she can grow into the color matching aspect of this activity. And the pipe cleaners are store inside which is just an added bonus. - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#6. Wacky Sacks |||| The only issue with us for these is that the eyes keep falling off. Some of my friends said their older kids (3+) have already broken and ripped these open. Maybe best for the very young crowd. - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#5. Pool Noodle Stringing |||| With a little help, A can totally string these and loves doing it (and then taking them off again.) The chunky rope is a great size for her hands. Photo by emilycake84 | Photobucket - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#7. Color Matching Wheel |||| So far A just likes to take off the pins that I clip on but soon I think she'll be interested in putting on the pins herself.  The color matching aspect is a little ahead of her too. The clothespins can be expensive so look for a deal! Here are some clothespins from Amazon that work out to be .08 a pin.

#1. Rainbow Rice ||||  We haven't played with this yet but it will be really fun in her sensory table, I'm sure. I know she's going to love scooping it. I think it would be good to give the rice separated into colors first so the kids can do the color mixing themselves.  photo by emilycake84 - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#4. Button Snake |||| It can be tricky getting the chunky button through the slits but after you do it a few times the holes become bigger. A isn't quite able to do this one yet and it doesn't grab her attention. Maybe in a couple months! photo by emilycake84 - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#3. Pom Pom Stuff It ||||  In A favorite of A! She would love to dump them back out again but doesn't know how to open the lid (yet!) It's the perfect size to throw in my diaper bag. She's played with it every week during church.   photo by emilycake84 - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas

#2. No Sew Fishing Game |||| The fish have 3 metal washers in them so they get picked up pretty easily by the magnet. It will be easy to add more to the set, as well. I think A could probably do this one soon.  photo by emilycake84 - 10 Busy Bag for Kids Ideas
