15 Busy Bag Ideas

15 busy bag ideas for toddlers and preschoolers.

I love busy bags. I've been using them off and on for nearly three years. Most often I use busy bags with my children when they are in the 12-24 month old range (here are 7 of our favorite), and then switch over to toddler trays or busy boxes after that. However, busy bags are perfect for traveling with little ones, and the following busy bags accompanied us on our month long road trip. But all Continue Reading
