Busy Bag – Spice Container fine motor skills January 13, 2013


This is a super simple busy bag to make.  All you need is an empty (and clean) spice container and some pipe cleaners. Simply cut the pipe cleaners so they will fit inside the spice container so your child can put them through the holes in the top.  My three year old still likes to play with this some. He can take the lid off and put it back on so he will do it over and over. I plan on keeping this in my diaper bag when the baby is ready for it so I always have something for him to do.

    What age would you recommend this for?

      As you know every child is different but I would think some place between 18 months and 2 years would be a good time to start. You do have to think about the fact that the child could put the pipe cleaners in their mouth (or up their nose). Make sure that you are supervising the child when needed. This might be a good thing for your child to do when you are sitting next to them when you are doing laundry or computer work.
