Let’s see what’s in the May 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. — May’s theme was “Spring Part II” and included a collection of seasonal crafts to display around your home.
Felt Bug Craft Kit
This cute craft included felt “bug” body/wing/head pieces, green pipecleaners, plastic beads, and large googly eyes. All of the pieces were either self-adhesive themselves, or were to be held in place by the self-adhesive elements.
Sticking on the googly eyes.
We also added a little mouth to make him look happier. 😉
DIY Unfinished Wood Spring Wind Chime
My girls always enjoy decorating these cute DIY wind chimes. A pack of 12 mini markers was also provided.
If there’s an object for my kids to decorate, chances are pretty high that it’ll end up with a rainbow pattern.
Like the green bug above, Miss Butterfly also required a drawn-on face.
Color Your Own 3D Tulip
For this craft, your child was to color in both of the flower parts (petals and stem). Once colored, you needed to assemble the flower by inserting the tabs into the appropriate slots on each petal. The straw would then be inserted into both parts to serve as a stem.
Both the front and back of the pieces were to be colored in.
The end result turned out really cute! — And yes, it was also given a “girl” face.
Spring Big Eye Bug Ornament Craft Kit
Both of my girls LOVE butterflies, so they were excited that we received the butterfly version of this craft.
It was super easy to complete too — just peel and stick.
Chenile Bug Finger Puppet Craft Kit
This craft was a bit confusing to figure out… The instructions referred to a “large double-sided foam” piece, which I didn’t see in the bag (or in the photo of the completed craft). Since I wasn’t 100% sure how it was supposed to be assembled, I just did it myself while the girls worked on their other projects.
Eh… I tried. 😉
DIY Flower Garden Sticker Scene
I think this is the 3rd or 4th time we’ve received this sticker scene between this and other kid’s subscriptions. That said, my kids still enjoy creating the colorful bug-filled garden scene.
Everything was placed in a specific order — flowers first, then houses, frogs, worms, ladybugs, snails, bees, and ants. Butterflies were saved for last.
The happy, crowded garden!
Spring Fun & Games Activity Book
Kids could use the enclosed markers or their own crayons to complete this bug-themed activity book.
Of course, she chose to color a butterfly page first. 🙂
May’s DoodleBug Busy Bag was definitely a hit for my butterfly-lovin’ kiddos! All of the crafts were easy to complete (well, except that pesky ladybug) and we had fun displaying them around the house. 🙂 — If you’re interested in subscribing to DoodleBug Busy Bags, June-September will include a variety of different non-themed crafts.
