One of the first busy bags I made was for my 7 year old daughter.  She is always board and has nothing to do. (We will not talk about the fact her room is filled with books that she loves to read) I took some large Popsicle sticks and listed several activities she could do so she is not board.  Now when she says she is board I tell her to go pick a stick and she has to do the first one she picks. I  have them in a small zip top bag that she knows the location of. Here are some examples of what we have on the sticks.

wright a letter to your teacher
