I was recently sent August’s DoodleBug Busy Bag for review, so let’s see what was inside!
Everything was stuffed into a big plastic ziplock bag. August’s theme was “Cute as a Bug” and featured six bug-related crafts.
The information sheet listed each project along with instructions, tips and fun facts about insects.
Lightning Bug Jar Craft Kit with Mini Glowsticks – What a fun little project! This kit comes with a little plastic jar that your kiddo can turn into a cute little lightning bug. Just stick the pipecleaner legs into the pre-drilled holes, attach his head, wings, & other appendages, then toss in the mini glow sticks to watch him come to life. Neat!
3D Buzzing Beehive Sticker Scene – This is a great craft for the littler little ones. Simply decorate the beehive pieces with the included stickers and assemble the two pieces by sliding them together at the center through the precut slits. (Photo shows it “assembled”.) There’s even a string already attached for easy display!
Paper Plate Ladybug Craft Kit – Another easy craft for little ones. Just apply all of the “ladybug parts” to the red paper plate “body” to make a cute ladybug decoration. Includes string to hang her up.
Ant Clothespin Craft Kit – Use the included glue dots to create your very own ant clothespin friend. Again, another easy ones for the littler kiddos.
Butterfly Paper Plate Craft Kit – This is pretty much like the Ladybug Kit, except that it’s a colorful butterfly. Your child uses the adhesive foam pieces to decorate its wings and the pipecleaners to make curly antennae.
Bee Magic Color Scratch Craft – I remember doing one of these scratch board projects when I was little and it was so neat! Your little one will use the included scratching tool to reveal the hidden colors beneath the black surface. They can scratch stripes, eyes, and other key bee features into the boards and hang them up with the included string.
While my girls are still a little young for most of these projects (they just turned 2), I think DoodleBug Busy Bags is a great subscription for the intended age (3 and up). The crafts are very straightforward and could probably done with little guidance. Perfect to keep little ones entertained on a rainy day!
