Today I’m thrilled to share simple activity bags for kids.
Whether you use this as a summer bucket list or you do these activities throughout the year, these simple activity bags are perfect to have on hand. All you need is a few craft supplies and some paper bags to make over 30 activities for little ones!
Once you’ve got the paper bags, each activity only requires two to three supplies to make. From fizzy sidewalk chalk to bug puppets to making your own friendship bracelet loom, kids will be having fun in no time!
