I’ve participated in several busy bag exchanges, and one of the busy bags I received contains uncooked pasta shapes. They are in different shapes, and dyed different colors. The bag also contains a string and several plastic cups. The cups are for sorting the different colors and shapes. The string is for practicing hand-eye coordination by making a necklace. Pattern repetition can also be incorporated.
My son loves making necklaces with the noodles, as well as with other things: wooden beads, pipe cleaners, etc.
Have you participated in a busy bag exchange? What was your favorite busy bag activity?
