It’s DoodleBug Busy Bags time! — The theme for October’s “bag” was appropriately “Halloween”!
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 October 2016 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 info sheet, along with photos and tips on how to complete each one.
Happy Halloween Foam Ornament Craft Kit – An easy peel & stick foam craft decoration with a string for hanging.
Positioning the ever-important spooky black bat!
Chenille Stem and Beads Spider Craft Kit – A great kit for working on those important fine motor skills! Twist the pipe cleaners together to form the spider’s body, then thread the colored beads onto each leg and attach googly eyes.
Hello there, Mr. Spider.
Halloween Foam Magnet Craft Kit – Subscribers could have received a witch, dracula, or monster kit. We received the witch and my girls loved her. 🙂
Craft Stick Silly Monster Banner Craft Kit – There were 3 monster variations we could have received for this craft and we ended up with the spotted orange guy. I love that no glue is required to adhere the craft sticks — just stick them on the self-adhesive foam sheet and you’re good to go.
Family art night!
Givin’ the monster some funky green hair.
The stick monster is complete!
Foam Halloween Graveyard 3D Scene Craft Kit – Easily construct a spooky 3D graveyard with foam pieces and wooden dowels.
Carefully inserting the gravestones.
So cool! I think this was my favorite craft of the bunch. 🙂
Halloween Bottle Cap Necklace Craft Kit – Subscribers could have received materials for a bat, ghost, or spider necklace. We got the bat!
Whenever we get necklaces that require bead threading, this is how assembly goes down. Yay, teamwork! (And no fights over having to take turns.) 😉
They had a bit of a mishap with eye placement, but he’s still kinda cute.
Foam Halloween Mask Craft Kit – Again, there were a variety of different masks we could have received. — Green monster, werewolf, witch, or pumpkin.
While we do enjoy all of our DoodleBug Busy Bags, the holiday-themed ones are always our favorite! They’re great for getting us into the spirit of the particular holiday and make for cute decorations to display around the house. 🙂 Upcoming themes include Fall/Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, and Valentine’s Day.
