Preschool Activity Bag Exchange
A few days ago I happened upon a blog with a preschool activity bag exchange with other moms across the country, I jumped at it! Basically you agreed to some guidelines (like keeping each bag around $1.00), are assigned an activity theme (generally fun & educational) and then go to work.
The main idea is that you (and 29 other cyber friends) make a self-contained activity that fits into a zip top bag. When you need an activity to occupy your bored or too busy kid, you bust it out! Some are great for on-the-go while others are a bit messier and work better at home. Either way, kids love any new activity so I am super excited for Charlotte.
My project is lacing cards. I purchased pre cut shapes, laminated, cut out, punched lacing holes in them...almost ready to go. I will send them off in about a week and after another week a box with 30+ different activity bags will land on my doorstep. Sweet, Sweet Jackpot!
Gotta say these would be great for party favors, classroom holiday exchanges or charity donations.
