(pssst…. there’s a coupon at the end….) Have you heard of busy boxes? I don’t know about you, but it’s hard to homeschool with toddlers and preschoolers running around. My first two kiddos were 3 years apart so even when my second child was little, I wasn’t doing much formal school yet with my oldest. BUT….now I have one in high school, one in middle school, and a 2.5 year old!!
I’m a pretty organized person, but the added craziness that a toddler brings is sometimes just too much to handle in a day while also doing all the other things that demand my attention….and I don’t think I’m alone here.
Okay so how do we survive?
One of the best ideas that I’ve used is busy bags. They can go by busy bags, busy boxes, busy books… you get it. They are contained activities for little ones that can keep them busy (and usually learning) so you are freed up to help your other kids, do the laundry, or whatever else. Although with my first 2 kids were close enough in age that I didn’t have any real difficult school to do with my oldest, I still had times I needed to keep my daughter occupied and distracted. A friend told me about her busy boxes that she ONLY pulled out for special occasions. I loved the idea and put together a few fun items into a couple boxes and kept them on the shelf. They were like magic!
Little Learners Busy Boxes
Fast forward 10 years and here I am with a toddler and older homeschooled kids that need my help. I remembered those busy boxes and started making boxes for my 2 year old. I put toys that I knew he loved, easy crafts that he could do himself, coloring pages and markers, sticker sheets, fine motor fun like scissors and paper strips. Then I started getting really crafty and making different activities, printing out flashcards and making games out of them, and showing him how to play with each of the activities. There were just a few things in each box and they ONLY came out when I needed him quiet and occupied.
As friends saw some of my fun boxes, they wanted them too!
And that’s how Little Learners Busy Box was created!
