Moms of toddlers, I feel your pain. Sometimes you just need your kid to be occupied for 5 minutes so you can brush your teeth/make a phone call/toast a pop-tart/whatever. My twins were 2 1/2 when my 3rd was born, so we took on the toddler game full force. Busy bags were always a great way to perk up a kid who was sick of their toys or bored in the checkout line at Target.
And I have the master plan that you need! I was able to purchase ALL of these items at Dollar Tree, our local (giant) dollar store, where everything truly is only a dollar.
go buy this stuff!
-colored popsicle sticks
-hook and loop fasteners (aka Velcro)
That’s it. Five items, $5. And here are all the links you need to make it happen…
Phew! You made it! That was a lot of links… I hope this helps you keep your toddler busy and gives you a few more minutes to come back and check out the rest of my blog. 😉 Now go get busy!
Disclaimer: you may not have enough of one particular item to make ALL the activities including that item at one time, but you can either rotate those activities or if they’re a really huge hit, just go spend another dollar and double your stash.
