Busy Bag Swap! (now Closed)

(Unfortunately, the swap is now closed.  I encourage you to organize your own!)

I am so bummed that I missed out on an opportunity to create Busy Bags with 30 other woman around the country.  So, I am taking matters into my own hands.  I am hoping that 29 of my friends (or friends of friends or strangers, whatever, I'm not picky) will be willing and super excited to jump into this adventure.

I originally tried to join here, but didn't make it into the top 30.  For a great explanation, you better go back and click "here".  For a mediocre explanation, please, read on.

For those of us with children toddler and preschool age, I'd like all 30 of us to choose 1 type of Busy Bag to make... and we will each make 30 of them.  You will then mail them all to me, and I will mail 1 of each (30 total) back to you.  That will give each of us 30 different activities to take on the go for our tots, or I'm planning on letting one little man use a busy bag while I spend some one-on-one time with the other little man in my life.  With us planning to homeschool in September, I'm thinking I'm really going to need these.

If you are interested, please comment below or email me at JanaLBrown@hotmail.com with Busy Bag Swap in the subject line.  Once I have 30 moms on board, we will proceed.  In the meantime, you can search around online and figure out which Busy Bag you'd like to make.  I want to ensure that we don't get duplicates, so you'll need to let me know once you've made a decision.

Now share this with all of your friends.  And hopefully your friends will share it with their friends.


  1. I love this idea and would like to join in! My son is about to turn 3 and I am dying to find ways to keep him happy this summer as we both stay home together (usually he's in daycare and I'm in school).

  2. I am so in... My name is Janessa from Reno, Nevada. I am a mom of 2 soon to be 3 here in about 6 weeks.
