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. This months theme is Hippity Hoppity and unlike last month we got it in enough time to do the crafts before the holiday.
This month there are seven crafts included and all of them look like ones Bug will love to do.
Easter Egg Magnet
Bug really likes any of these that require her to stick things together. Magnets are a big hit too so this one is a win all around.
Easter Egg Button Ornament
I have had to put up a special spot for the ornaments Bug makes. I’ll be glad to get the heart one down and replace it with this egg.
Easter Egg Character Ornament
Great now I’ll need two hooks for display. I think this one will be cute when done. There were a few different ones you could get but the bunny is going to be a favourite since talk about the Easter bunny has already begun.
This turns into a tube with feet and ears. Should prove challenging.
Flower Bunny Magnet
I generally hate fridge clutter but have resolved myself to the fact that kids equal stuff stuck to the fridge. At least this will be cute.
Easter Door Hanger
I really thought the big blue shape was something else when I pulled this out of the package. Turns out it’s just the base for all the other stickers. Ooops.
Beading and jewelry??? Bug is never going to take this off and then the baby is going to pull on it and it will break and then WW3 will be happening in my house. This will probably be the favourite thing to create this month.
As noted last month 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. If you need glue or anything else that does not come in the prepackaged craft they make sure it’s in your bag so you really do not have to run to the store. The fact that each month is themed around a holiday is great too since Bug is at that age where holidays are super fun!! I have a few extra days off this week because of the holiday so we will get to these soon.
