Keep Your Kids Busy Summer Package!

If you have been following SAPsMaMa Blog on Facebook (where we talk about awesome stuff all the time!) you have noticed that I have been creating a lot of Busy Bags the past couple months!  These have been wonderful in not only keeping SAP busy when she gets board (on the go or at home!), but many times they are great exercises that help her learn!

To share my new found love of busy bags I have decided to make a special busy bag package for one lucky winner!
Keep your kiddo busy this summer with these wonderful activities!


Important info:

**This Package is aimed toward Preschool and Kindergarten level children, though can be adapted for younger children (who would love the stories and watching flowers grow!) to older children (who might love to pretend to be weather men or are learning of the phases of the moon in school!)  I am willing to substitute most items with something else I can create for  you if you feel something in the package will not suite your child well, just ask!**

Pictured: 5 Little chickens felt story (Final product will include eyes on chicks!), mini felt weather board with all pieces, 2 felt lollipops, some seed paper and the frame I will be making for your recycled seed paper kit!

Prize pack includes:

1 “Today’s Weather” mini felt board and weather pieces

1 Recycled seed paper kit and a few pieces of seed paper (see kit and learn more in my Recycled Seed Paper Tutorial!)

1 “5 Little Chickens” felt story (Includes all pieces, a print out of the story, and description on how to tell the story with the pieces) ~OR~ 1 Phases of the Moon felt activity I will picture on my Facebook page soon

2 Felt lollipops in wrappers of your choice of colors

ARV estimated at $30 +

All items are  hand-made by me (SAPsMaMa) with my own patterns, instructions will be included where needed.

    • Kirsten, I will be posting more busy bag stuff, I just started making busy bags and felt food, felt stories and activities but will be making it more common as it seems many people enjoy the ideas! I might make a menu at the top of the blog to make it easy to locate these in the near future when I get more posted. I’m glad you like them! If there is any specific suggestions you have or are looking for ideas on busy bags I’d be happy to help you!

    All I have to say is WOW! You have been busy! No wonder there haven’t been as many posts! LOL I think dd would love the “Today’s Weather”. She is constantly wanting to look at my phone to see the weather. She will look at it and tell my (by the picture) whether it is going to rain or not! So cute!

    • Amanda, very cute! I’m glad she is loving her weather! It’s great for play pretend with dollies too according to SAP 🙂 Yes I’ve been super busy and still behind but I plan to post more, I have a lot of ideas but work has been preventing me from doing too much. The lull in the blog will only be a short time but I will do what I can to make it worth stopping in every now and then for everyone!

    We love busy bags! I recently became aware that the even existed and have build up a little bin for ’em. Sooo handy for my 3yr old and 17month old!
    My son would love the little chickens! Nana & Papa just got chickens a week or so ago, so he’d definately love that (so would my daughter too).
    Though, they would both love the felt popscible sticks. Seriously, what kid doesn’t love candy=) And they love using the play food/dishes.
