Here is a fun felt busy box idea- a school bus busy box, perfect to play “getting on the bus with friends” to prepare children for riding in the school bus!
This busy box is really fun for preschoolers and even kindys too! Let them draw their own faces, or better yet, use real, small photos and attach them to the pebbles for a personalized busy box!
What you need:
- Yellow, black, white, red, orange and grey felt
- two mini pompoms/buttons
- glass pebbles
Use the FREE templates(instructions to gain access to Freebies at the end of the post) and cut the felt pieces. I always add our pieces to a small box with a flip lid and then line the lid with a piece of felt too.
Draw faces on the pebbles, or as mentioned above, use small photos and attach them to the pebbles. My 5 year old helped me with this bit, lol!
Ready to play! Build the school bus and play with your friends! Board the bus safely, discuss other safety issues too plus the order of picking up and dropping off friends to prepare your child. Count friends too for counting practice!
A fun little busy box, perfect for Back-to-School preparation!
