We signed up to be a part of another Busy Bag Swap recently–this time doing a felt cupcake Busy Bags. And since all of you enjoyed the Clothesline Busy Bag downloadable I shared in May, Joy from FiveJs.com put together another pattern, instructions, and download for the Cupcake Busy Bag.
If you’re unfamiliar with Busy Bags, basically, they are ziptop bags with a simple project or game to keep young children busy. It’s so helpful to have things like this put together to pull out when I need to be working one-on-one homeschooling Kathrynne or when the children come to me asking what they can do. Instead of having to wrack my brain, I can just pull out a pre-packaged project and get them started on it.
Kaitlynn (4) especially loved making the cupcakes. She’s our artistic child who is already trying to concoct recipes on her own, so this was right up her alley!
We bought the felt at Hobby Lobby and the bags at Dollar Tree. All told, these definitely cost less than $1 per bag.
Our box of 30 bags ready to ship!
