Nuts and Bolts Busy Bag

This Nuts & Bolts Busy Bag might be the easiest, most fun bag you've ever put together!

You can tuck it in your purse for when you get stuck in a line at the grocery store or set it up as a center or Montessori station!  It is a lot like the Nuts & Bolts Sensory Bin, but easily portable!

To set it up, simply place a small assortment of nuts, bolts, and washers in a zip-lock baggie!  Optionally, you could include a small bowl to contain the pieces when you open the bag...though a bowl doesn't fit in a purse as easily as the baggie with nuts and bolts!

When your children open the bag, they will experiment with placing different nuts and washers on the bolts.  They will exercise the fine muscles in their fingers and engage their brains in analytical and creative ways at the same time!

SAFETY NOTE:  Nuts, bolts, and washers are a choking hazard!  If your children will place them in their mouths, use a different activity!  You may want to try the giant nuts and bolts in the images below.  All activities are meant to be done with adult supervision.
