Make a Bubble Blower Busy Bag

Make a Bubble Blower Busy Bag

Busy Bags are just bags filled with a simple activity to help keep your kids busy. I keep several of these in a closet and when I hear the inevitable "I'm bored" I bring one out for the children to play with. 

The prep for busy bags ranges from simple to complicated, but because you can plan them out ahead of time - you don't have to do any work when you give them to your kids. 

This busy bag is simple to make and so much fun to play with!

How to make it

1. Start with a plain lunch sack. If you're feeling particularly crafty, then you can decorate it, but you don't have to!

2. Inside the bag, you will need straws, rubber bands, and the bubble solution. 

Each kid will probably want to make two bubble blowers. Each blower takes about six straws and a rubber band.

3. When your kids are ready to play with their busy bags, have them wrap a rubber band around a bundle of straws, dip the ends into bubble solution and blow!

(If you don't have any rubber bands, tape or a string works well, too!)
