Every week the girls have swimming lessons, and due to their different abilities they are in different classes. This means that I have to keep each girl occupied whilst their sister swims. If I could fit in my costume, I would probably take the opportunity to be in the big pool with them, whilst the other has their lesson in the teaching pool. As it stands though, this is not an option
Half hour may not seem like a long time, but when you are three years old and there is nothing to do, other than watch the general public swim or stare at the vending machine, you get bored very quickly. We are not allowed to watch the lessons, as it distracts the others in the class, so we just sit and wait.
With my eldest we often take the opportunity to read a book, do school homework or practise spellings, but it is more difficult to occupy my youngest. That is until I discovered busy bags from All about party bags. These bags are intended to keep children busy at weddings, or events or even to be used as party or gift bags but they are great at entertaining children any where.
As my girls are very different in their tastes and what will keep them busy, I ordered two very different bags. There are nearly 300 bags to choose from, so there is bound to be something to suit each individuals taste and every budget.
I have to admit to thinking they would make great party bags, and am tempted to order some for the girls parties. The bags are great value, and are packed full of different items. My youngest was incredibly pleased with her bag and it certainly kept her entertained whilst we waited for her sister.
I think the busy bags would also come in very handy on journeys, either car, train or plane. They would be a great gift to give to a child before the journey and they could have excitement at opening the gift and then using the busy bag throughout the journey. As you can choose your bag you could pick items suitable for the journey, or even with a theme related to the destination.
Our busy Bag has been put back into the swimming bag ready for next week. Busy Bag from All about party bags, certainly are a great way to keep little ones entertained.
The girls were sent a bag each for the purpose of this review. All words are my own opinion.
