DoodleBug Busy Bags time! — The theme for June’s “bag” was “Dad”!
If you’re new to them, DoodleBug Busy Bags is a fun subscription for little ones from Kidable Adventures (the company behind Little Thinker Box). Bags are aimed at children ages 3 through 9 and contain all of the materials needed to complete 4 to 8 fun crafts. Each bag will focus on a different theme, often relating to upcoming holidays or seasons. Monthly subscriptions are $15.99 and include free shipping.
Let’s see what’s in the June 2016 DoodleBug Busy Bag!
As usual, all of the crafts were shipped in a padded envelope and sealed in a ziplock bag.
June’s theme was “Dad” in honor of Father’s Day. All of the crafts were listed on the info sheet, along with photos and tips on how to complete each one. There were also a few games included for spending some quality time with dad.
You Otter Know Dad Magnet Craft Kit – A simple magnet craft that involved punching out the self-adhesive foam pieces and positioning them on the otter as shown on the instruction sheet.
Putting the magnet in place on the completed otter.
Father’s Day Tie Card – A fun tie-shaped card came with a pack of 12 markers for kiddos to decorate for dad.
That’s one seriously colorful necktie!
Dad Tool Beaded Key Chain Craft Kit – Doodlebug Busy Bags often includes a beaded necklace craft in each shipment, so it was a nice surprise to see a keychain version for Father’s Day. This one involved a little more grownup help, but the girls did great stringing the beads.
Perfecting those fine motor skills!

Dad Foam License Plate Sign Craft – I kinda laughed when I saw this one since my husband is so not into racing. (Or any stereotypical “dad” stuff really.) We still had fun with it anyway. 😉
There was a sheet of foam letter stickers that allowed you to “write” a message of your choice. We went with a simple “We love you”.
Some of the racing stickers ended up ripped/placed upside-down, but it still works.
“All About My Dad” Wheel – I think this was my favorite craft this month. It was a cute “wheel” with pictures to color and fill-in-the-blanks all about dad.
Coloring + letters = happy kiddos.
Clearly, racecars were on the girl’s minds when they (very falsely) answered these questions. Too funny.
As mentioned before, there were also a few games included to play with dad on Father’s Day…
Tabletop Football – Getting that little brown “football” to fly through the goal posts was a lot harder than you’d think. But we tried. 😉
Mini Basketball Game – This one was equally as challenging. You had to “flip” the little basketball into the basket. NOT easy.
Mini Bowling Set – I thought this would be the easier of the games, but it was actually a bit tricky to set up due to the uneven bottoms on the pins. Still a cute little game.
Pullback Mini Racers – My kiddos loved these! I’m not sure if they even bothered letting dad have a turn.
A great Father’s Day themed bag of crafts and games from DoodleBug Busy Bags! The girls had a lot of fun making everything and were so proud to present them to my husband this morning. 🙂
