DoodleBug Busy Bags time! — This month’s “bag” is Thanksgiving themed!
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 November 2015 DoodleBug Busy Bag!
As usual, all of the crafts were sent in a padded envelope and sealed in a ziplock bag.
November’s theme was “Thanksgiving” and all of the crafts were listed on the info sheet along with photos and tips on how to complete each one.
Gourd Turkey Craft Kit – A cute craft that involves attaching various foam turkey “parts” to a real dried out gourd. The felt shapes were self-adhesive to make this project even easier for little ones to complete.

The finished result was so cute!
Enter with a Thankful Heart Wreath Craft Kit – Using the foam ring and leaf shapes, your kiddo can create a pretty Thanksgiving-themed wreath to hang on the front door.
Peppa Pig kindly assisted with the leaf placement.
The finished wreath! I let the girls (and Peppa) decide on the placement of everything themselves, so it’s a little sparse in some areas. 😉
Printed Give Thanks Magnet Craft – A super easy magnet craft that just involved adhering the smaller adhesive-backed foam shapes onto the larger one to make a festive decoration for your fridge.
Magnet crafts are always nice since they’re so easy to display.
Turkey Beaded Necklace Craft Kit – A festive beaded necklace kit for your little one to wear on Thanksgiving.
Blurry bead stringing. (It’s the best photo I could get… Little hands move so fast!)
The completed necklace. Gobble, gobble!
Paper Turkey Craft Kit – This craft used a variety of printed cardstock shapes that were to be glued together to form a handsome turkey decoration. A gluestick was provided with the kit.

A handsome turkey, indeed.
Magic Color Scratch Fall Leaves – Using the plastic scratch tool, your little one can reveal the colors beneath the leaf’s coating to make a pretty design.
The girls are getting a lot more comfortable with the whole “scratching tool” concept.
Clearly, a minimalist approach was taken on the red leaf. 😉
Lacing Cornucopia Craft Kit – I just realized this wasn’t listed on the info card… Maybe there wasn’t enough room? This fun kit involved lacing together a foam cornucopia, decorating the outside, and stuffing it with fruits & veggies.
Tuckin’ in the fruits.
So colorful & festive!
Another fun holiday-themed month from DoodleBug Busy Bags! The holidays go by SO fast these days, so it’s nice to sit down with the girls and do cute little seasonally appropriate crafts like this. Now we can’t wait for December’s Christmas selection!Browse more Kids Boxes in my Subscription Box Directory
