Last year I used some leaves to make a nature rubbing’s busy bag, this year I decided to add some other items to the busy bag to add a bit of variety.

You will need:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue*
  • Pencils

* I used a glue gun to make these, but I am sure that you could use ordinary PVA

How to: 

  • Cut your cardboard into small squares and draw a picture on each one.
  • Using your glue go over your design and leave to draw.
  • Once it is all ready, all your little one needs to do is put a piece of paper over your design and use a pencil or crayon to rub over it.  Since these are very small they are easy to put into your bag to use out and about.
