For the past few weeks I have been working on coordinating a Preschool Activity Bags Swap. Each mom prepared 20 bags of the same activity and then swapped to receive 20 different ones!
Last Friday was our swap day and I am so thankful to these moms for committing to do this and for their hard work. The bags turned out great and my little ones are already enjoying them very much! I hope it will be a blessing to their families.
This was my first time coordinating a swap and it does take some time and organization but I would definitely do it again.
We used the book 1 of Preschool Activities in a Bag. The guide comes with everything you need to get the swap going so that made things a lot easier.
Here's how we are using the bags....
I'm dividing the bags in groups of 5 (4 groups) and each group of 5 will be next to our school table for 2 weeks in a row. We will use the bags when I need the boys to have an extra sitting time, work on dinner or when I need Noah to be busy (doing something other than watching TV) while I work on phonics and handwriting with Caleb.
This way the boys will be doing new activities every two weeks for 2 months! So far Noah is holding up to 25 minutes working on one bag. He thinks they are so fun and has no idea he's actually developing very important preschool skills!
