    I have recently started hs my 13 yo son and his 4 yo little brother is excited to have him home all day “to play”. Therefore, I NEED lots of busy bags for my very busy boy so his big brother can get his schoolwork done. I’ve recently also started making traceables to help him write his name.

    I use busy bags with my toddler while my Pre-K child does homeschool lessons. We also use them in restaurants or anytime quiet waiting is required. They are getting bored with our current busy bags, so we would love new ones!

    My little boy is turning 2 this weekend. He loves playing with his sisters’ school stuff and gets creative (MESSY) whenever I turn my back to help them with school. He needs busy bags to keep busy and learning without making trouble.

    This is such a great idea. Even for kindergarteners. Mine only does math, cursive and phonics, leaving the rest of the time to create her own activities. I also have a toddler – a little too young. However, the kindergartener and the toddler play well together. I think I would use this to fill out the free time while I work with my son.

    Thanks so much for this giveaway and linking it up with us on the #homeschoollinkup. I will gladly friend you on all of your social media channels.
