Doodlebug Busy Bags is a monthly subscription service that sends fun seasonal crafts to my home. Each Doodlebug Busy Bag contains 4-8 crafts that help my son develop his fine motor skills, creativity and confidence. This subscription service is run by Kidable Adventures, who also produces the Little Thinker Box. My son loves the themes of the easy-to-assemble crafts, and I appreciate the tips contained on the detailed instruction sheets. New subscribers receive a nice big red bag, perfect for holding lots of beautiful Doodlebug crafts.
Each month’s box arrives with a general overview of all the crafts along with color pictures of the finished crafts as well.
Every box contains neatly organized bagged crafts along with any other supplies that might be required, such as glue dots and magnets.This month’s theme was Spring! All five Spring crafts piqued my son’s interest. He chose to start with the mosaic butterfly.
My son had fun deciding where to place his mosaic tiles.
He was really proud of the way this turned out. He wanted to display it, but was surprised to find it didn’t come with a magnet or string. Instead of displaying it, then, he decided to show it to his sister, who thought it was awesome!
Next, he wanted to check out the butterfly chimes.
Although I’m not quite sure what his decoration represents, he is very fond of it. I asked him if he wanted to add more colors to the mix and he said, “No, just red.”
After finishing up his wind chime decorations, he decided to make the flower in a flower pot.
This was the first time he’s ever used a brad. He liked that it allowed you to spin the petals. He was equally enthusiastic about the glue dots.
This craft turned out really well.
While this bird was very cool, its construction required a bit of help from me. I think it would be a great challenge for the older kids who can read the instructions and figure things out on their own.
Still, my son was excited by the end result. He looked high and low around the house for an available knob on which to display his newest craft.
Finally, my son attempted the colorful Happy Spring! banner.
He had a lot of fun threading the paper and affixing the paper strips into rings. I thought this was a good challenge for him.
