Welcome to the ultimate collection of busy bag ideas! We just love busy bags at our house.

What is a busy bag?

A busy bag is a bag that contains a reusable activity that your child can use on their own with little supervision or instruction. Busy Bags are meant to be engaging and to help keep a young learner busy and occupied. Busy bags are ideal for use while Mom is occupied, cooking or teaching older students, while you wait at appointments, or while traveling in the car.
