Activity Bag Swap

We had our activity bag swap last night, and it was a great success! 17 ladies swapped preschool activity bags (from Preschool Activity Bags, vol. 1-2), and took home a nice, big "variety pack" full of activities sure to charm our preschoolers. My daughter has been working on some of them this morning--I can hardly drag her away! I encourage any of you reading this who have preschoolers at home to check these books out. The ideas are easy to make and really seem to appeal to our little ones. The swap was very straightforward to organize and is a great way to gather a nice collection of different activities for your children. We aimed for a wide variety of academic, play, fine motor, sorting, and recognition skills: bean bag toss, lots of ABC or number matching, coloring, tracing, bead stringing, and even an activity that involves clipping colored paper clips on matching colored squares.
