Toddler Busy Bag

Yesterday I shared with you eleven activities for a toddler busy bagOf course I had to come up with something to store them all in, so today I am going to share the busy bag with you.

I grabbed a canvas bag that I already had on hand, some scrap pieces of felt, scissors, a black marker and my glue gun and got to work. Since I do not have a sewing machine and it can be quite hard to sew through canvas and felt by hand, I used no- sew tape and my iron to affix the brown felt to the bag. This is only temporary as I intend on borrowing a sewing machine and sewing it on permanently when time permits. I then cut out some fun objects that my son likes to say as well as the letters to spell out "My Busy Bag". Then I used my glue gun to glue the pictures onto the brown felt. Here is the final product:


My son loves this bag, especially since he can say most of the words. He also likes to run his hands on the pictures and open and close the car door. So far he is really intrigued with his bag and the activities seem to hold his attention longer whenever I take them out of the bag because he knows they are his special bags of fun things to do. 

Have you made a busy bag or activities in a bag recently? Do you know of some great websites or resources that would be helpful in creating a busy bag for toddlers? Please join me tomorrow for a Busy Bag Linky Party!

  7. This is a great idea. It drives me a little crazy when parents don't bring and activity, toy, book with them in public to keep kids occupied and expect them to behave like an adult in public. Most of the time, kids aren't misbehaving, they are just bored! Thanks for sharing on Modern Craftswoman Monday! Rory

  15. I have done a restraurant bag as a gift for a family who likes to go out to dinner. The kids use it only when they are out for dinner and need to be entertained. I put a coloring book, crayons, tracing pages, markers, scissors, glue, blank pages to draw on, etc...
