Let’s see what’s in the January 2019 DoodleBug Busy Bag!
As always, all of the crafts were shipped in a padded envelope and sealed in a ziplock bag.
All of the crafts were listed on an info sheet, along with photos and tips on how to complete each one. — January’s theme was “Winter Fun: Snowman Pals” and included a collection of snowman/winter friends-inspired crafts to decorate your home.
Glitter Cardboard Snowman Shapes Craft Kit
This cute snowman craft features a glittery cardboard body that has NO messy glitter fall-out. (Woo!) To assemble, simply peel and stick the foam pieces to the body as shown on the instruction sheet.

He’s a lot sparklier in person. 😉
Polar Bear Tissue Craft Kit
I love old school-ish projects like this tissue paper craft because they remind me of the type of crafts I used to make as a kid. 🙂 To complete it, you needed to crumple up the little squares of tissue paper and adhere them to the self-adhesive polar bear head shape. Once done, you were to add the stick-on facial features and cord for hanging.
I think we may have crumpled the tissue a bit too much, because there weren’t quite enough of them to cover the bear’s entire head.
Adding the face.
Accordion Snowman Craft Kit
A simple foam peel & stick craft kit with a twist — paper accordion arms and legs!
I helped with the folding, but the girls attached the limbs using the provided foam stickers.
It’s hard to tell from the photo, but this guy is LONG! — At least a couple feet.
3D Cardboard Snow Globe
Calling this craft “3D” was a bit of a stretch, but it was cute nonetheless. I also appreciated the reappearance of that mess-free glitter cardboard. 😉

The cardboard tube was the “3D” part. Again, a stretch but it does make for a good stand. 😉
Snowman Family Ornament Craft Kit
This ornament kit was super simple to assemble and totally adorable once completed.

Such a happy little snowman family!
Snowman Craft Stick Skier Ornament Craft Kit
The instructions for this kit were a little unclear (at least to me)… Mainly the part about folding the snowman up so there’s a crease in the foam boots. So we just skipped that step and tried to match the image on the instruction sheet the best we could.
Peelin’ n’ stickin’.

Winter Penguin Glitter Mosaic
My girls used to LOVE these glitter mosaic sticker kits, but they can be incredibly time consuming and I think they just don’t have the patience for them anymore. Personally, I was never a fan of the glittery mess they made, so I’m not mad about their lack of interest. 😉 We’ve decided to just pass these along to their 4-year-old cousin whenever we receive them.
Dress-Up Snowman Mini Sticker Scene
These are always fun and super simple to complete. — Just use the sheet of snowman stickers on the right to decorate the wintry scene on the left.
Hats & glasses for everyone!
Happy snow friends. 🙂
Snowman Cup & Ball Game
In addition to the crafts, a cute little snowman-themed cup & ball game was also included in January’s bag. Fun!
Another fun assortment of easy to complete crafts from DoodleBug Busy Bags! It’s been quite cold & snowy here lately, so the theme was perfect. 🙂 — If you’re interested in subscribing, the theme for February will be Valentine’s Day, March will be Spring, and April will be Easter.
