Felt Penguin Dress-Up Busy Bag February 15, 2017 – Posted in: crafts, felt, kids crafts, toys
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 toys with tiny pieces that I do not like cleaning up. Sometimes I also look for busy bag ideas on Pinterest.
I found a cute felt penguin idea HERE so I decided to make my own. Of course, I over-achieved a little bit and made the accessories more detailed. All it took was some felt scraps, hot glue, and a few googly eyes.
It is fun to mix and match, but it can also be used for color sorting.
Everything fit inside a regular sandwich bag, so I just keep it in a drawer to pull out on special occasions when I need a few minutes.
If you want to pin this one to save it for later…
If you are super ambitious, I have lots of quiet books I have made that you can see HERE.
