Little Pintesters: Junk Match Busy Bag

We love Pinterest! I recently pinned THIS activity and threw it together in less than five minutes with stuff I had lying around the house.

They're called Junk Match bags. You pretty much grab an assortment of small objects you have around your house, trace them on cardstock and put them all in a gallon ziploc bag. That's it! Easy! Then have your little ones match the object to its outline.

Outline all the random objects

Place them in a large ziploc bag. You may need to trim the cardstock a little bit to make it fit.
Let your kids have fun!

This is probably the easiest activity to put together!
TIP: The cardstock can be laminated to make it last longer.

We give it a BIG 10!

Here are some more ideas to make this activity even more fun and educational:
  • Make themed bags for holidays with small holiday objects from the Dollar Store
  • Make alphabet bags each with objects starting with a certain letter for practicing letter sounds
  • Bags can be themed around shapes or even color
Please let us know in the comments if you try this activity and if you come up with more fun ways to use it.
