Ocean Felt Busy Box

Our monthly Activities Blog Hop is happening today and our theme is Ocean! I made this ocean busy box with a lunch box and felt ocean pictures to take along on trips. It is no sew too which makes it real easy to make!

Like I mentioned, I used a lunch box(almost like THIS one), a blue one, with Felt to make this travel felt busy box. It is the perfect size, small and compact, but with enough space to play!

I cut a dark blue piece to fit snuggly into the lid(I did not glue it down for if I want to change up the colours for another type of felt busy box in the future):

Then I cut light brown for sand/rocks and dark green for sea weed/plants:


Some sea creatures were cut from different colours felt and googly eyes added(or you could buy ready made ones like THESE):

All the felt pieces are loose so that my kids can arrange it as they wish. Stories can be told and pretend play will happen, oh the possibilities!

A perfect busy box idea for traveling or whenever you need something to occupy kiddies!
