It’s Easter!! Our Busy Bags need to be refreshed as the kids aren’t playing with them anymore. As I was holding a fussy Baby Red in need of distraction, I saw an Easter commercial and thought, how about making some Easter themed bags! I settled him to play and jumped on Pinterest for some Easter Busy Bag ideas.
I found a lot of ideas! From making felt eggs to sewing to even reading activities there was something for every age, stage and subject! So, gather your stash of plastic eggs, felt, foam, and beads. And, try some of these fun activities I found on Pinterest!
Great way to use scraps of trim, felt, and some extra buttons! Make this Jumbo Felt Egg Decoration Kit from Crafty Journal.
