Busy bags are a great tool to have handy when you are traveling or need something quiet to pull out. Happy Brown House share the CUTEST tutorial for a Minion Busy Bag that makes me want to go purchase lots of felt pieces and start building some myself.

Recycled snack cups and foam work together nicely in these two crafts from Study at Home Mama. She shares a floating turtle and crab that her daughter painted and created – great for an ocean theme!

Name Spelling

If your little one needs help working on spelling names or simple words, you can put together this simple busy bag from Spark and Pook. You’d just need to drop it in your bag when on the go, or pull it out during dinner prep for a quick spelling activity.

 

Fork Weaving

Everyone has forks in their silverware drawer right? Here’s a  simple yet fun fork weaving craft from Hands On As We Grow to keep little hands busy. Or big hands. Because I would completely love doing this as well.
