This is probably our favorite busy bag yet!
What you’ll need:
-half of an egg carton
-an empty coffee creamer container or similar plastic container
-colored craft pom-poms
I originally just used the empty coffee creamer container for my toddler to practice pushing the pom-poms through the hole in the top. But, I decided to take it a step further to let her practice sorting (which she loves, by the way).
After cutting an egg carton in half, I painted the inside of each cup with the corresponding color. Once it was dry, she could sort the pom-poms into the appropriate color (or, “matching” as she calls it).
She loves to then place the pom-poms back into the plastic container, and move them back and forth, and then carry them around, and sort them again, and…
When you’re done, just toss the materials into a gallon-sized ziptop bag!
