I can't take credit for this, but it was such a great idea that I wanted to share. A little while ago, one of my friends organized a busy bag swap. She set up a spreadsheet in google docs and everyone who was interested picked one of the activities to make. Then we all got together and swapped. My kids have been loving these. They're great for keeping little hands busy.
Pictured below are the activities I got in the exchange. You can use the same ones, or come up with different ideas. Pinterest is full of them.
