Spring Busy Bag Sheets

A fun way to keep kids busy in the car or waiting at the doctors office is with busy bags. I’ve joined other kid bloggers to give you some ideas on how to make SPRING busy bags!

I made some matching and counting sheets, using laminated cardboard, spring flowers and butterflies/dragonflies foam stickers, pipe cleaners and beads.

So I laminated plain old cardboard first.

Then added the foam stickers, placing matching colors opposite each other. I made small holes(using a sharp kebab stick) where the pipe cleaners will be attached.

 I added strips of tape to the back over the sharp points of the pipe cleaners for when it is laying on their laps.

I only added a few beads, but one can use these to make a few simple sums too.

I had to make two sheets, obviously, one for each child. W(2yrs) enjoyed this activity, counting the beads, while moving them. This is great, not only for counting skills,  but for fine motor skills development too. Not to mention color recognition skills, and the opportunity to work on vocabulary too!
