More on the Toothpick Trace busy bag…
Here’s a better photo of one of the tracing pages. As noted in the original post, I made hand-drawn tracing pages using shapes from our puzzles. After tracing, I went over the lines with a marking in some of my preschooler’s favorite colors.
We have yet to try out this activity because I’m busy hosting a booth for BusyBagCentral at a kids sale this week! (Yay!) Reader Hint: At the sale, I’ll be releasing the new Busy Bag Kits that will include a bunch of great sensory games and bags. So check back next week for photos and reviews of the new, super-awesome kits!
When life is quieter again, we’ll pull this toothpick activity out for play and I’ll update you on how my four year old likes it!
It’s worth noting that, when I was making this activity, my son watched me and excitedly said, “I want to do that too!” So we let him trace for the first time on his own paper and the creation of the Busy Bag became a craft in and of itself!
