    Thank you! Wonderful resource!

  2. Thank you so much for this printable set! This is awesome. I’m homeschooling our children, and my toddlers are so very busy and really want to be included in our school time. I’m trying to put together some quiet bins/independent activities and this will be perfect for my block-building-loving little ones after I take them through it a few times. I really appreciate you sharing your hard work with other moms!! :)

  3. thank you SO much for creating this! i just spent the last hour with my toddlers working on this. i think they’ll understand counting so much quicker now!

  4. Thank you so much for posting this excellent Busy Bag Learning activity! I am a speech language pathologist and a Mommy of a 2 year old boy. I will certainly using this at home and at work with my kiddos! Thank you again, I love it!

  5. Thank you soo much for providing this!! I’ve seen either these before something similar before and wanted to try it with my girl, but never got around to making the cards up.. thank you thank you!! :) :)

  6. Just wanted to let you know at the top right of your blog it says contast us – I am guessing it is a typo. I know I miss things like that all the time & would want to know =-)

  7. This is such a clever idea! Thanks for sharing the printable too =-) I shared it with my Facebook readers here:https://www.facebook.com/LivingLifeIntentionally

    Thanks for linking up to TGIF & I look forward to seeing you again Friday,
    Beth =-)

  8. This is very cool! I just printed it out and plan to try it with both my boys this week. I think the little guy (22m) may be able to match the colors and build the towers, but I don’t think he’ll get the counting part.

  9. I LOVE this! I’ve been wanting to do some king of activity with my little guy’s legos (Mega Blocks), so I’m super excited to see this activity. Yay!

  10. Thanks for some really great ideas. As a homeschooling mom to four small children (the younger two being 3 and 1), this will be a great series for me. I look forward to following along. :)

    • Busy bags are a sanity saver during homeschooling! They are used daily in our home to help the younger kids play and learn while I work with our kindergartner.

  11. This is fabulous! I teach preschool, and my kiddos there love duplos, too. This will be a great activity to teach patterning and have fun at the same time. Great idea!

      (hint ~ be sure to stop by on the 8th)

  12. Great{!!!} idea!

    • I’m always looking for ways to make our normal toys into learning tools. If your child likes Duplo blocks, we have a couple more Duplo activity bags later on this month :)
