Keeping little one busy with busy bags (Part 1)

Bet most of you have heard about busy bags. If you haven’t, well, it’s a simple bag that contains simple activities to keep your child busy especially when you are waiting for food at the restaruant or a visit to the doctor. You can use it before bed time or during quiet time too. I’ve recently joined one busy bags exchange and is amazing how each parent brilliantly made those bags.

What’s the upside of it?
You get a variety of busy bags all at the same time. In other words, your little one get to have an assortment of busy bags to choose from.

The downside?
You have to make so many sets of the same bags for the exchange that your hands and back can get really sore!

Nevertheless, is a great experience and great satisfaction to see your little one having so much fun learning through busy bags. Let me introduce to you some of the busy bags we have gotten over the exchange.

  1. Number counting
    Mei mei had fun counting the colourful pictures and using the cute little animal pegs to clip on the correct number.

    Not only does this improve their number counting skills. It also helped in their motor skills.

  2. Tracing
    Mei mei doesn’t really like writing especially using pencil and paper but she loves using marker. She’s really focused when she started holding on to the marker, tracing every pictures on every pages.


  3. Pipe Cleaner and Beading.
    This bag contains a variety of learning skills: learning numbers, color sorting and also motor skills training. Extended activities can be done with your own creativity.
  4. Geoboard game
    I would expect this to be fun as many of the parents were telling me their kids played with this the longest time. Surprisingly, not for mei mei. She just played awhile and proceed on to other games. Like they said, not all the kids the same.

What did she do after a few busy bags?
A pretend play: manicure for mummy.

I am a busy mummy of 2 wonderful kids. Their thirst for learning has made me busy researching and making learning resources/materials for them. Most of the time will be according to the topics that they have requested. Otherwise, I will randomly pick a topic and create the materials for them. Most of the time, the materials will include right brain training as well. From them, I get to learn a lot too! However, material preparation is quite a challenge! It will even be more challenging if you are a working parent! Here, I would love to share what we have done and hope busy parents out there will find our materials useful for their little one. If you have any queries/comments or if you have any topics that you would like to cover with your little one(s), do drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can :) Our mission is to find, discover and reveal the fun of kids learning! Drop us a message if you are interested in any of our materials. Let's make learning fun!
