It’s funny what memories from our childhood stick with us into adulthood. When I was little I had a friend whose mom would receive the Oriental Trading magazine. I remember flipping through the pages and living in a dream world–wishing I could have everything on all of the pages! Now that I am a mom I receive that very magazine. Granted, it’s not quite as magical or mesmerizing to flip through as it was when I was a kid, but I still find myself intrigued with some of the bright, colorful and fun products. Being as obsessed as I have been lately with busy bags, I decided to see how many I could come up with using some fun Oriental Trading products. I love browsing through homemade busy bag ideas on various blogs, but something I’ve found is that a lot of them don’t seem very durable. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s totally genius the ways moms utilize ordinary objects like toilet paper rolls and Pringle’s can to make various busy bags, but if I’m going to take the time to do a project like this, I want something that will last longer than a few uses. I had so much fun making these, but I made so many of them that I’m going to have to break them up into two separate posts. Tune in on Friday for more ideas (and if you haven’t already, subscribe to blog so you don’t miss future fun projects for the kids)! Okay….here they are! Tune in at the end of this post I’ll teach you how to make these as a group to make this very cost-effective.
