I am always on the lookout for paths that will lead me toward the never ending fulfillment of occupying these little minds. I am here today to share a few of the amazing things that are working for us (on good days).
First and foremost, one of the most useful gifts I received this Christmas was a laminator. As a homeschooling mom, I think that this is an invaluable tool (right along with my paper cutter). I used both of these tools to create a few really fun busy bags that have not only been fun but have also been helping us do "preschool" and learn numbers and letters.
Our Favorite though is hands down, the "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" printable. We read the story first (it is currently a favorite at our house) and after I had made the printable cards we used chocolate chips to decorate our cookies and learn numbers.
HERE is that link. (photo courtesy of playdough to plato)
Here is the free printable for that one.
Do you have a favorite busy bag link to share?
