Toddler and Preschooler Activity Bag Fun!

I first discovered the concept of activity bags around the time my twins were born. We had just moved, I was hugely pregnant, on bed-rest for awhile and then tending to newborn twins who were nursing around the clock and mostly only sleeping in arms. I also was trying not to rock my two-year-old’s world any more than possible (fat chance!). The main idea is that you assemble or make a self-contained activity that fits into a small bag.

The Ultimate Road Trip Activity Bag. By Melanie Haiken Nothing derails a family road trip faster than bored backseat passengers. A well-stocked activity bag can mute the "Are we there yet? " melody from the rear and help you log some serious miles in peace. How elaborate your activity bag should be depends on the length of your trip, how many children you'll need to entertain, and their ages and attention spans. These parent- and kid-tested supplies will help you motor without meltdowns. Books on tape or CD: Nothing makes the miles fly by faster.

Portable CD or tape player(s): Remember headphones and plenty of AA batteries. A cheap 9" x 12" baking sheet: Use as a playing surface so crayons, Matchbox cars, Legos, and other small items don't roll away.

A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks Blog

I have too many littles and when I have tried this, well, it was not good. I am here to say, that you can STILL lapbook with your young crowd without them using the glue and scissors. In fact as I printed off our Preschool book a month ago, I decided to make it reusable. First we (my 9 year old daughter Lora is my homeschool teacher’s aid) cut out all parts of the lapbook. Then we laminated them. I also laminated cardstock to stick each booklet to. I then used my comb binder to bind the book together. Under the letter flaps, I had Lora, cut pictures out from magazines and we used Velcro to attach them. Using Velcro allows us to use this book over and over again.
