Last week I shared a simple preschool bag activity, Pretty Princess Beads. I have made several bags in the past week in preparation for our trip, and I want to share another super simple one today. Simple means it took ten minutes to put together. Hooray for simple!
I purchased a large container of "gems" at Hobby Lobby (also half price last week, about $7). I also purchased some pieces of felt for .25 each. I used each piece for three different preschool activity bags, so that was a bargain.
I cut a rectangle (probably 6 inches by 4 inches) from each felt color.
Then I dumped the jewels out and found coordinating colors.
I bagged each color in its own bitty jewelry bag. I did this because I want to control how many colors we introduce Sweet Girl to at one time, so we don't overwhelm her.
Then I put the felt squares and the bitty bags of gems into a Ziploc. Super simple.
This activity is good for:
Fine Motor Skills
Counting (when finished, count the number of gems on each felt piece)
- You could also sort the pieces by shape instead of color, if desired.
