Doodlebug Busy Bags February 2015

A new subscription I’ve started getting for Bug is Doodlebugs Busy Bags.  The website describes them as….”DoodleBug Busy Bags is a monthly craft subscription for kids ages 3 – 10. DoodleBug Busy Bags keep little hands busy and little minds active. Each month your child will receive a bag of 4 – 8 curated crafts, often centered on a holiday or seasonal theme, and all the supplies your child needs to complete each activity. Once completed, the crafts may be used as learning tools, decorations, toys, or given away as gifts. DoodleBug Busy Bags are fun, easy to complete, and help develop motor skills, creativity, hand-eye coordination, and confidence.”  Bags are $23.99 including shipping and go down with longer subscriptions. Our first bag showed up the other day and it was for Valentine’s Day.  Even though it came after the day the crafts are still fun and Bug is so happy with them.

The bag came with this sheet detailing the included crafts and if any items were needed that were not in the bagged crafts, this let you know that as well.  I did not have to purchase any of the other items, they make sure to include those in your outer bag.

Rainbow Heart Magnet

This is the only project we have done so far and it was definitely at a skill level Bug  could do alone.

Jeweled Heart Ornaments

This makes three ornaments.  Everything is peel and stick so this should be another okay craft.

Tissue Paper Bear

This one might be a little above Bugs current skill level.  You have to crumple and glue pieces of tissue paper to the bear cutout.  I foresee mess.

3D Foam Valentine Heart House

This is another one that I think is geared towards the higher end of the age group.  Maybe if I do the big parts Bug can put all the finishing touches on and still be happy.

I Love You Key Chain

Bug will be all over this one.  She loves threading things and beads.  The bigger fight may be who she chooses to give it too……

Ladybug Valentine Tic-Tac-Toe

We haven’t really touched on how to play tic tac toe but it might be easier to get in a game form then on paper.

All of these crafts are from Oriental Trading but since I don’t have to purchase them in large quantities off the site and everything we need to create is included in the bag I like this.  The fact that each month is themed around a holiday is great too since Bug is at that age where holidays are super fun!!
