Educational Tip

We’ve been downloading some of the free on-line printable resources for preschool and Kindergarten aged children that MoneySavingMom alerted me to. I tried them out today, hoping they will work for Ella’s Busy Bag at church during the sermon. She begged to start working with them today while Ezra napped! Here, Ella is rolling a die and graphing her results. The pattern for the die is included in the printable pack. We printed it on card stock, cut it out, folded it and taped. A spinner is another alternative in the pack. She is having so much fun. A sheet protector turns a resource into a reusable one! I now have a binder full of sheet protected activities. All Ella needs are some dry erase markers and some tissues for erasing. We found some cheap dry erase markers in the $1 Spot at Target. Cheap, educational, and fun! What more could you ask for!?! Did I mention that this one is also QUIET!?!

What are your favorite Busy Bag Activities? What are some great tips to help activities be used more than once???

  1. What a wonderful idea! You are such a great mommy Jessica! I know I say it often, but it’s so true. You got the idea and followed through and made it happen. Ella is one happy camper! I can just hear her being so excited that you allowed her to play with these new activities today, rather than having to wait to use them when she sits in the church service. I’m sure she is going to be telling all the pew sitters around her all about her new stuff tomorrow.
