Let’s see what’s in the November 2018 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. — November’s theme was “Thanksgiving” and included a collection of appropriately themed crafts to decorate your home.
Thanksgiving Dinner Stand-Up
My girls were excited to tackle this craft first. It involved coloring the wooden pieces with the provided markers, assembling them, and recreating the first Thanksgiving Day feast.
Hard at work.
The finished set-up was so cute! Aside from the rushed job they did on the table, they really took their time coloring each piece. 🙂
Paper Bag Turkey Puppet
An easy peel-n-stick project that required you to simply adhere the foam pieces to the paper bag as shown on the instruction sheet. As always, no glue or tape was needed.
Placing the eyes… right before drawing on eyelashes — because everything gets eyelashes these days.
It’s Tom, er, Tina turkey!
Your child could make their own cardboard pilgrim hat by simply placing the two self adhesive foam pieces in the appropriate spots and fastening the closure in the back. Since this craft was so easy, I didn’t get a chance to snap any photos of it being completed, but you get the idea. 😉
3D Mayflower Ship
This craft was a little more involved than the rest, so it required a bit of grownup help. It wasn’t difficult, just a little more challenging.
I gotta say, the completed ship was pretty neat looking. 🙂
Thanksgiving Story Beaded Bracelet
The bracelet and necklace kits are always a hit with my kiddos. This one was Thanksgiving themed and included a card with “The Story of Thanksgiving”, which told the meaning of each colored bead.
Stringing the beads.
The completed bracelet!
Cornucopia Glitter Mosaic
My girls used to LOVE these glitter mosaic sticker kits, but now that they’ve been in just about every shipment this year, they’re kind of bored with them. 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. 😉
Aside from the glitter mosaic, my girls loved completing all of the crafts in November’s DoodleBug Busy Bags. Their favorite kit (and mine!) this month was the wooden stand-up scene. It turned out so cute! 🙂 — If you’re interested in subscribing, the theme for December will be Christmas, January – Winter, and February – Valentine’s Day.
