Activity Bags ~ "Where fun and education fit in the same bag."
The authors of this book go the extra mile by sharing specifics and including resources for a bag swap. A swap allows a group of moms to save time while receiving several activity bags at once. Each mom makes several of one bag and then swaps with the other group members. This allows you to purchase and prepare for ONE activity while receiving the number of bags as moms who participate. If 20 moms participate in your swap, you'll end up with 20 different activity bags. The details included in the swap directions make it virtually foolproof. The authors cover everything from setting dates to the follow-up meeting and include a participation form listing who will provide which activity and a sample cover letter for participants. ~ ~Product Review By: Dena Wood, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, LLC
After becoming pregnant with my third child on some days I would put the kids in front of the TV while I took my daily nap. Now when it is time for my nap the kids are asking, "Hey Mom, can we do our Preschool Activities instead of watching TV?" What a blessing the activities have been for me. Thank you so much for creating this much-needed book! ~ Carol V.
My 12-year-old daughter put the Preschool Activities into a handy carry along tub to take with her on her baby-sitting jobs. When she shows up to baby-sit, both the parents and kids she's baby-sitting for are especially happy to see her! The kids can't wait to get some of the activities out of the tub, and it makes the parent to baby-sitter transition so much easier. The parents are so impressed and pleased with the activities, knowing that while they're away their children will not only be entertained, but also learning while they play. These activities have helped my daughter go from being a "good" baby-sitter, to becoming a "great" baby-sitter!

I am so grateful for "Activities in a Bag" because it helps me give my kids activities that they enjoy and learn from, especially because I greatly lack creativity - this is a great help! Thanks

** Plan a swap soon !
There are many great activities in this book, and most are quite easy to make. I chose to do this on my own, so it took some timeto put it all together. I like their ideas for working with others to make the bags, but it would take more time to organize than I had. I'm excited that my 2 and 4 year olds will have several different educational activities that they can do on their own as I school my 3 older children. ~ Currclick review.
