Make Your Own Busy Bags | My Baba

When it is time for me to get lunch or supper ready my charges will normally go and play with their kitchen in the corner, and bring me all sorts of yummy creations to eat. So it seemed natural to take this creativity and put it into a busy bag for when we are at restaurants. I know a large number of places will have activity sheets for them to fill in, which normally have a draw your own pizza or such thing, but these busy bags are more interesting and can be used by children that aren’t at the stage  yet or just aren’t interested in drawing.
