One Fish Two Fish Busy Bag

I had another cute busy bag idea and it only took 5 minutes to make, so I went with it. I know my daughter needs some work on her numbers so One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish was a pretty obvious choice. I just cut red and blue fish out of card stock, stacking a couple pieces together to cut a bunch at once. The red ones are marked with numerals and the…

Cat in the Hat Name Practice Activity

Kindergarten registration is quickly approaching. I am not ready. My summer baby is not completely prepared academically, either. Oh, I think she will be fine and I don’t expect as much out of her because she is younger than the other kids. Still, I am feeling like a failure for not doing a better job of preparing her.

Egg Letter Matching Activity

I like to make sure that my children are able to occupy themselves. It is how I get things done around here and a good life skill for them. With only one at home this year, it has been challenging. She can get really clingy. “Mommy, take a nap with me!” really means come lay with me while I talk your ear off and keep annoyingly touching your face. She is such a tease because…

Felt Penguin Dress-Up Busy Bag

A few weeks ago I was talking to my sister about how to keep the kids occupied when you are trying to get something accomplished that requires a little more concentration and brain power- like taxes. One thing that I like to do is to keep certain toys and activities out of reach so that they have that novelty factor when I do pull them out. It can be puzzles, play-doh, or a box of…
