Have you heard of busy bags?
They are gallon size bags filled with a quiet activity for preschool age children.
I have two at home this year, and sadly nap time is disappearing.
I still want to have some quiet time after lunch, before everyone gets home from school.
We organized a busy bag exchange.
There are lots of ideas how to do this on Pinterest.
In our group we decided to each make 7 of one activity.
I can't wait to see what they came up with.
I just have to say I Love Chalkboard Paint!!!
It is so easy to use.
Oh the possibilities...
I made my 7 blocks out of a 2x4 that my sweet farmer cut for me.
He even sanded them for me.
I painted them with two coats of Chalkboard paint using a mini touch up roller.
It worked great and left a nice surface to chalk.
I had some larger blocks that I thought would be great for Christmas. A little chalk and a red burlap bow all done.
Change the bow and the lettering for any holiday.
So easy and quick!
Hmmm what else can I paint...
