Group C - Toddler Busy Bags!

This was our third swap, containing some of the biggest hits yet!

Pom-pom Pick-Up!

A great activity for concentration and fine motor-skill; using tweezers to pick up pom-poms, straws, pipe cleaners and other assorted small things, and then transfer them into the cup! This one came everywhere with us, for a long time. By Kate of Busy Bags!

Five little Ducks!

A super puppet-glove to accompany the song '5 little ducks'. The white Mother-duck is intended for the child to wear on their hand, but it works equally well the other way round! A lovely re-usable favourite! By Debra of Busy Bags!


This simple activity was a great success with everyone! Three different containers were provided with four envelopes containing different contents (Rice, Giant Cous-Cous, paper clips and small stones). The children had to tear a corner off an envelope and decant the contents into a tub, close the lid and shake shake shake!! A fine motor, and auditory extravaganza! By Jewels of Busy Bags!

Bugz Memory Game!

This matching game has been a hit for us; really simple but great for finding pairs, and teaching words such as 'pair, same, different, other, another" etc. I'm sure that with a bit of modeling from Mama and Papa, the game element, from turning them face-down will make these last even longer! Great for memory skills, visual discrimination, and cementing the concept of 'two, or pairs'. By Elly of Busy Bags!

Christmas Tree Creations!

A festive take on arranging shapes. After playing with ours a few times, we decided that it would be nice to stick it all down and make a picture; plus my 2.5 year old discovered that some of the shapes were stickers, and there was no stopping him! :) By Lauren of Busy Bags!

Rainbow Weaving!

This was a brightly coloured weaving activity. The coloured pieces were secure at one end and the white pieces were secure at 90 degrees to the coloured ones. They could be weaved together traditionally, or in any random way, as seen above! This was surprisingly addictive, though my little boy wanted to pull them off more than anything, so we added a stapler!! Great for fine motor skill and planning. By Karla of Busy Bags!

Lollypop Stick Jigsaws!

A simple but really effective jigsaw idea; line up the lolly-pop sticks in the right order to make the smiley face! By Sara of Busy Bags!
Sort your Animals!

Match animal silhouettes to either their colour, or their word. To help my toddler, I drew round one of the shapes on each card so that he could complete the task independently. Good for colour-matching; silhouette identification and early word identification. By LauraF of Busy Bags!

Beanbag Bonanza!

Three triangular bean bags, with a whole cacophony of games to play with them! Download and print these little cards with suggestions of numerous games to play! Supports the development of hand-eye coordination, gross motor skill, tactile development, planning, and all sorts of other things! By HelenS of busy Bags!
