{It’s Playtime} Activity Bags for Quiet Play!

This week we are featuring TONS of Invitations to Play that you can put into a paper bag.

We have used these for a Christmas countdown activity in the past to  count down to Christmas each day of the December Holidays your children can open a bag and enjoy something fun to do together…but it works great as a quiet time activity too!
