play + learn

Today is a chill at home, relaxed day because Oliver is sick with a cold.  He just wants to rest and watch tv which most of us do when we are not feeling well but I knew some  organized play would be good for all of us so I got out our busy bag tote that I often forget about.  Over a year ago a mommy friend put together a busy bag swap with about fifteen moms.  We met at the park one sunny afternoon, the kids played, mommy's chatted and we all took home fifteen different busy bags.  Most were under $20 to make. 
I love that the kids are practicing fine motor skills, problem solving and reinforcing things they already know like colors, shapes and letters all while having fun!
