Before you know it Summer will be here! Woo-hoo! Here is a fun color matching busy bag for your preschooler getting ready for kindy!
I made a printable for this busy bag, although I do prefer to use felt or craft foam. I just did not have enough colors of felt/craft foam on hand, hence the printable. You can use the printable as is, or, only print one page and use it as a template. (Download instructions at the end of the post)
I simply laminated the pages, cut them out, fold and stuck them together leaving an opening at the bottom for the popsicle stick to go in. Problem is that the glue does not stick well on the laminated pages. In hindsight, I would first cut it out and fold it, then laminate it. When cutting out, cut close to the bottom only(leaving an edge around the other parts) so it will split open by itself making a proper pocket. Hope that makes sense?
I made a few other popsicle-themed color matching printable activities to go with this one. In your class you can have a color matching station where kids can rotate and work on the same skill but with different materials, making it more fun! Or, for one child you can change the activities often before he/she gets bored.
