5 Responses to Busy Bag Exchange & 20 Toddler Busy Bag Ideas

  1. My children are too old to enjoy this, but I want to host an exchange party with the end goal of giving these books to be used by homeless kids and I want them completed in time for Christmas.
    I’m looking for suggestions in organizing this dream so that it becomes a reality and so that I am not left with tons of donations of supplies and no help. Any ideas?

    • What a great idea, Dawn! I think you have 2 options…organize it just like the swap I described in my post (i.e. get 10 volunteers and have them all make 10 of the same bag, so at the end you have 10 sets of 10 different bags) OR get a group of people together for a few hours to make some “assembly lines” and put them together all at once. I hope it works out for you!

Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my unoriginality I can provide some inspiration to you, too! Read More...
