Box of Bags

An Oldie but a Goody!
This was one of my first products...when I had time to sew and put things together! Now, I am so excited to be offering it again for your little one's stacking, sorting, and tossing enjoyment!

Box of Bags

These 10 texture bags are a great way to encourage curiosity and stimulate your child’s developing senses. Each sensory bag is a different rainbow color and fabric to promote visual and tactile learning. On the opposing side there is a high contrast, black and white, patterned fabric to further captivate and hold your little one’s attention. Each bag has a different filling adding another dimension to your child’s exploration. Tiny conversation pieces, they provide many linguistic opportunities for you to explore together: color, texture, pattern, weight, spatial characteristics and more…

These bags are sure to pique your little one’s interest; nurture hand-eye coordination; and provide endless possibilities to unstructured play. Sort them, match them, fill and spill them – toss them, hide them, touch and feel them – your imagination is the limit to the exploratory and play possibilities of this little Box of Bags.

Filled bags measure approximately 4” x 4” square and are filled with various materials: poly fill, lima beans, lentils, barley, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, and leftover fabric and fiber remnants (these are just some examples, your set may vary a bit from what's listed here). They are topstitched for that simply "finished" look. For now, they come inside a limited edition, carry-all tin with a handle for easy clean-up and portability.

Beach Mural

We did several projects to include on our Beach Mural this summer. One of them was a simple color-me shell page. We both colored some of the shells to put up at the bottom of the ocean floor. Buga doesn't always enjoy coloring - it's not that she can't do it, because she can - I think she just prefers to move onto something else. She's not the kinda gal that wants to be kept between the lines. She likes to push the boundaries of every stroke, every line. Some days we carefully and quietly color (like today)...but these days are few and far between!




Then we sorted the Shells by Size from smallest --> biggest
