What’s inside?

This month’s theme was all about Halloween so all activities and crafts revolved around the monsters and spooky hands-on projects! How fun!

The information sheet lists all our crafts for the month and helps keep track of what’s in the busy bag. Very handy dandy for sure!

Everything inside our box this month. Also, each activity comes packaged individually with its own set of instructions, making it a breeze to follow through!

Glitter Mosaic Sign

Stickers heaven galore! Literally hours of fun for any sticker-lovin’ kiddo or just generally toddlers/preschoolers. But the best part about this activity is that it is all about learning color coordination and matching the right stickers to the appropriate area!

DoodleBug Busy Bags Kids Subscription Box Review - October 2017

Surprisingly, my 2-year-old joined in on the fun and both the kids actually spent some quality time together putting sticker dots on! Lots of quiet time for this mama here too. To say that I loved this activity would be an understatement. 😉

Plush Silly Monster

This was another great activity for the month which required some fine motor skills in terms of threading and putting our monster together with stuffing it with roving. I had to help out a bit as there were way too many holes for my 3-year-old to finish on her own. But she did end up doing most of it on her own. 🙂 You also get everything included, so nothing is ever required from your end, which is awesome.

She proudly named him Squishy the Monster. 🙂

Jack O Lantern Sand Art

Another fabulous activity, albeit a bit on the messy side. But this could easily be a great sensory activity as well as the kids get to mess around with colored sand. We just had to take the separate adhesives out and drop our colored sandbags into the section to create our Jack O Lantern art project.

My daughter was so proud of this one and it was truly a fun one to do! What an ingenious idea to create a painted look with sand and adhesives.

Patterned Bat Magnet

This was a relatively simple activity – requiring us to put together the stickers on the bat and applying a magnet at the back to use it anywhere!

Ready to go on our refrigerator! 🙂

Halloween Necklace

Another great activity to develop those visual, fine motor and cognitive skills – beading a Halloween themed necklace!

Totally doable for a 3+-year-olds to independently do on their own. We also ended up doing some pattern-learning with the beads, so it turned out to be great for learning those mathematical concepts such as patterns, shapes, and counting. 🙂

Halloween Cat Knob Hanger

A DIY cat knob hanger – all we had to do was stick on the required stickers and use the provided hanger to hang it over our door! Easy peezy and fun.

Halloween Watercolor Paint Activity Book

I am always looking for activity books like these as they can turn out to be quite handy on restaurant trips and such and with hyperactive toddlers, we all need more than a bunch of things! Love that this booklet comes with tons of pages with their own paint colors on each page. All you need is some water and get started!

DIY Halloween Sticker Scene

We always look forward to this sticker scene activity in our DoodleBug Busy bag as again it fosters imagination and allows kids to think outside the box – plus another fabulous on-the-go activity!
