Busy Bags Kids Will Love
When we take the grandkids on vacation each year I always add little goodies in a big backpack, which keeps them busy for the drive. I try to do things that can be done in the car but are also fun, card games, coloring books and crayons, snacks, and a lot of other stuff. Well this book Busy Bags Kids Will Love has given me some new ideas to add to their bags and when they are just hanging out with us.
As the parent of young children, it’s hard to find a moment for yourself. Busy Bags Kids Will Love offers you a smart way to keep your kids engaged so you can relax. With step-by-step instructions and color photos on each page, it will teach you how to make fun, unique games with simple arts-and-crafts materials you have at home.
Packed full of enough ideas for every week of the year, this book provides your kids with entertaining, exciting and educational activities, including:
•Fishing for colorful letters and numbers
•Building shapes with pipe cleaners and straws
•Practicing words by rolling the dice
•Getting creative with funny felt faces
•Exploring textures with blocks, nuts, bolts and zippers
•Learning to count with pom-pom patterns
