Busy Bags

Pin It

I have a busy bag collection. A busy bag is a simple, age appropriate activity that can be pulled out and easily assembled and completed by your child for when you just need a few minutes of uniterrupted time but don't want to stick them in front of the TV! For more information, click HERE

On this page I'll be posting the busy bags that I make for L.

 Clothesline Busy Bag

I found this busy bag idea HERE, which contains the free instructional page and pattern download. The idea is simple, you make miniature clothing with fabric or felt, add a few feet of rope or clothesline and some clothes hangers so the child can work those fine motor skills and hang up the clothes. I raided my scrap fabric stash to make the clothing which you see in the above picture!

There are several busy bags that I have that contain things I bought from the dollar store or things from my craft supply or junk drawer even! I love these because they were cheap and I didn't have to make a thing! Some bags just contain one item.
