Preschool Activity Bags

Just had to post these fast... I made them with a group a few months ago. We searched and searched for these pencil cases to put them in. Some people paid $2 a piece for them. Well right now in Walmart's Back to School section they are only 25 cents! A great deal! Go get 'em!

So Preschool Activity Bags or Kits are an ongoing idea where you put together a few easy educational kits together for your kids. They only get to have them at certain times like church, at home when you are playing with them or when you are going to pull your hair out and need something for them to do. Anyway there are tons of ideas online if you google preschool activity kits or bags. Here is one to get you started. They are addicting and so fun. Dollar stores are a great place to get your supplies and or ideas. My kids LOVE these!

Also, so fun to make in groups. We met together and had one person make the same kit for everybody else and then trade a few days later. We ended up with great stuff for cheap!

And, if you aren't interested in the Preschool Kits... just think of the small piece toys you could organize with these 25 cent bags or anything else you could organize. Seriously I think they are the greatest and I am trying to think of more things to do with them while they are there because after school starts they will be so expensive and hard to find. Maybe I am weird but I love finds like these!

I LOVE this idea! I have all this old teaching stuff from my teaching days. It sits on a shelf in my garage 'cause that's the only place I can fit it. When the kids bring the stuff in, it gets misplaced in their toy bins. I love the idea of putting them into pencil keepers and pulling them out only on special occasions. Thanx for the idea!!!
