Liam, Lily, and Lexie play with our Busy Bags Binder every day. We even take it in the car with us! Lexie requested a Busy Bags Binder geared toward an older child, and I knew just what to do!
Lexie loves to draw and create, and we have a plethora of art supplies. An Arts and Crafts Busy Binder was PERFECT for her (and Lily, too)!
- A 2 inch (or bigger) binder
- 6-8 Binder pouches (Only 47 cents each at Walmart!)
- Various art supplies to create 6-8 Busy Bags
- Cover sheet for the binder
I ended up making 6 busy bags. Any more and the binder wouldn't close! If you want to make more, just buy a bigger binder or keep the extra bags in a storage container and swap them weekly.
Here's what I came up with:
Drawing Busy Bag
- Mini Markers
- Small Notepad
- Chalboard Clipboard (Currently $1 at Target Dollar Spot)
- Foam sheets
- Foam Stickers (both found at dollar store)
- Clay Kit (It was a gift, but I know Walmart sells them for under $10)
- Play Packs (Target Dollar Spot) for coloring
- Small box of crayons
- Embroidery floss
- Small notepad
- Mini colored pencils
- Pencil sharpener
After I assembled the busy bags, I stored them in the binder. It's such a simple project!
This one is just as loved as the first!
The Arts and Crafts Busy Binder is so simple to make and everything in it can be easily and inexpensively replaced! Even better? The girls love it! Busy Bags Round Two was a complete success!
What would you put in an arts and crafts busy binder?
