After a recent post for a series about busy bags where I showed our latest simple fine motor activities using straws I was moved to collect a collection all in one place that has the specific purpose of being busy bags for fine motor activities.
Now, some of the items below are not represented in the actual posts as busy bags but because of their unique dynamics can easily be TURNED INTO a busy bag.
