What’s in a busy bag?
About Busy Bags
Little Scribblers’ Busy Bags are self contained educational activity packs that include reusable and engaging activities, ideal for keeping little ones entertained when travelling, at a restaurant or if you need a few moments of calm at home.
We have developed a custom syllabus, designed to create strong foundations that children are able to build upon as they travel through their educational journey. For example, we don’t just hop straight into letter writing. All the prewriting stages are covered first to ensure letter formation is approached with as much confidence as possible.Each pack includes all the necessary equipment needed for the targeted activity. Although children learn best through play, initially some guidance from a grown-up is needed to help fully develop the skills intended in each set. Don’t worry if they can’t do it, or perfection is not achieved initially. This is an opportunity for children to explore their own abilities with confidence. Allow them to make mistakes. Children often have a different train of thought to grown-ups. Sometimes you just have to go with it. When you feel the time is right, offer advice and encouragement.
Our intention is for grown-ups to be able to take concepts used in our classes home, as well as out and about, encouraging active learning in many areas of development. The ‘busy bags’ are divided into series’, covering different areas of learning. Individual series are also leveled, allowing little ones to move through a series, always laying the foundations needed for the next level.
