Best Busy Bags for Preschool and Toddlers

Love these busy bags! Lots of ideas for keeping kids entertained and learning on the go or while I get my work done. {OneCreativeMommy.com}

Would you believe that I’ve had this post planned since I started blogging? When my kids were still toddlers and preschool-age, I loved busy bags. I still love them! Since I just (finally) posted a couple, I decided to round up some more from around the web. I’ve collected over 35 fantastic busy bags, and I’ve divided them by category to help you search.  Here we go!

35+ Fantastic Busy Bag Ideas

Many busy bags fit into more than one category, but I’ve done my best to divide them up for you. Because I always like to see what the projects look like, I’ve included a picture from every post I’m sharing.
