It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a new Busy Bag idea, but here’s a new idea I came up with today. Well, I’m not sure how “new” it is since it is really basic and uses stuff you probably already have on hand, but it definitely kept Silas occupied and having fun for awhile during our morning homeschooling time.
Of course, it also made a bit of a mess, too. But that’s kind of par for the course with my life right now. 🙂
I gave him a little tub of beads, a small baby spoon, and a muffin tin and egg carton. He had a lot of fun scooping up the beads and transferring them from the tub to the muffin tin to the egg carton.
::You could have a child use pinchers of some sort to pick up the beads and put them in the muffin tin or egg carton.
::You could use other objects, such as rice, noodles, pom-poms, beans, or other similar objects.
::You could tape a number to the bottom of each muffin tin hole and your child could have to put the designated number of beads in each hole.
::If using colored beads or pom-poms, you could have the child sort by color.
