For our 4th Christmas busy bag I went with a counting combination with some number recognition.
This one is good for any season by changing up the items used on the one craft stick. To make this one Christmas themed I used stars and snowflake beads.
To make you will need:
- 10 jumbo craft sticks
- 10 beads
- 5 wooden pegs
- black marker pen
- hot glue gun
This one is rather simple to setup too! Hot glue those beads onto the jumbo craft sticks in order 1 to 5. Other glue works as well but just takes longer to dry!
Write the corresponding one, two, three, four and five. Then number your begs with the numerals 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5!
Now you have a lovely counting busy bag to play with! As you can see in the pictures the pegs can be clipped to the letters or the beads.
I love this set for my toddler for counting as well as my preschooler who is working on name recognition.
