Both kids are asleep at the same time and I am hard at work, prepping for a super fun Busy Bag Swap that is taking place here in the KC area tomorrow afternoon. I signed up over a month ago and I am just making my bags today. This seems typical, right?
I hope to share more info about this fun event once it is over, but wanted to share a sneak peek of what I am doing today!

I am making two different busy bag activities to swap. Both are based on ideas that I found on Pinterest (you can check out my Busy Bag Board for more inspiration). The first is an Apple Tree Counting Game Busy Bag, which I am making out of felt, cardstock, and pom poms. It's nowhere near complete yet. And keeping Lincoln away from my paper slicer is proving to be quite a trial.

I can tell that they are going to be really cute! I just may be up all night. Story of my life.

The second bag set I am making are these Race Car Shape Busy Bags. I am pretty sure Lincoln is going to be obsessed with them, so my hope is that other kids will enjoy as well. I'm including a race car for driving, and a dry erase marker to trace the shapes as well.
Once I get everything cut, I still have to go out to laminate all the paper. Maybe next time I will prepare sooner? Well...I doubt it, but it's a dream.
I'm so excited! I'm hoping to gain lots of new, fun games that will help me entertain my little ones - and meet other moms in the area, too. It's an awesome idea. Huge thanks to Brookie-Lee for setting it up for all of us!
Have you ever participated in a busy bag swap? I'd love to hear your experience and which bags your kiddos love!
