Make this fun counting hearts busy bag to help your little one with counting and fine motor skills too!
This heart-themed busy bag is quite easy to put together and you only need a couple of materials.
You will need:
- craft foam(I have used pinks, purples, reds etc)
- same colours as above paper
What to do:
Cut hearts out of the craft foam and punch holes in the middle. I made them the same size, but you can make a variety of sizes too. Then, cut the paper into circles(I used a punch), attach it to the pipecleaners by bending it around the pipecleaner and securing it with a bit of glue. Lastly, write numbers on it. I used the numbers 1-10 but you can use any numbers.
Add these pipecleaners and hearts to a small bag and you have a fun little Valentine’s Day Busy bag for when you are on the go(or at waiting times) to keep your kids happy and learning too!
