We have a large population of under 3's in our MOMS Club, and started meeting twice a month for playgroup. We call it Busy Bees...appropriate, right? ;) Last month we had a busy bag swap, specifically geared toward young preschoolers/toddlers. Busy bags are great for restaurants, church, waiting at the doctor, and car rides. We often use them when the big sisters are at an activity and we have to wait quietly or sit in the car while they finish. The activities usually take just a few minutes, which is about how long we can focus on one thing. :)
We combined the swap with a park day, and then we had a perfect Busy Bees event! Here are some pics of my Busy Bee and her big sister, plus pics of our fun new busy bag activities!
