What Are Busy Bags?

Busy bags are self-contained, fun, and educational activities. Often stored in zip-lock bags or pouches, these activities provide sanity-saving quiet time that parents need while engaging kids in meaningful play and learning.

Busy bags are versatile to use and inexpensive to assemble. This makes them ideal for parents, teachers, daycare works and childcare providers.

Materials Needed to Build this Busy Bag for Kids

To get started you will need to assemble all the materials needed.

The Bag – Use a larger zippered freezer bag or if you want something more durable I really like these File folders with snap closure.

Pompoms – Include 10 small pompoms, about 1cm i size, in bright colours.

Popsicle Sticks – You will need 10 colourful craft sticks.

Foam NumbersColourful foam numbers work perfectly for this busy bag, but magnets would work well too if you have those on hand already.

Free printable number sense cards – Download and print the number sense cards onto cardstock. To make them extra durable you can use a laminator!
