Punch by Number Busy Bag



I made 17 Busy Bags for our trip from Trans continental trip to Chile. These were used *a lot* and some of these bags are still around! So this busy bag is a lil addition to the list. 

Prepare: Cut random strips of paper and write a number on one side. Keep these strips with cute little paper punches in a small zipper bag or tray. 

Use: When your kid needs to be kept "busy", give him this bag. He/she has to punch by number. i.e. 9 punches on the strip with number 9!

That's it! Let 'em punch away to glory! Punch with a purpose!

  6. Haha, before I saw the photo I was thinking this game sounded quite violent but perhaps a good way to release travelling stress :-D

    1. I know right! I guess a 'punch' i.e. the instrument u punch holes with may be called something else in different parts of the world!

  7. So simple but so effective...kind of reminds me of my auntie sending me off to the garden to cut the grass with scissors as a kid...She must have needed me to be 'busy'!
