Busy Bag – Baby Crinkle Square

I’m involved in a Busy Bag exchange where each of the 6 mothers in the group makes 6 of something small to occupy our children. The idea is that you keep one and send out the other 5.  The other mothers do the same, and you end up with 6 different small busy items for a kiddo to do.  It’s a great way to meet other moms too. My kids are in two different swap groups, baby: newborn to 18 months, and preschool 3-5 years old.

Today I finished my busy bag item for the baby group.  I made crinkle squares!  For the baby set they are perfect.  They are soft and make a little noise, just enough to be interesting.

  I had all the materials on hand, so I didn’t have to spend any money on making my swap, just the shipping.  They are made of fleece, grosgrain ribbon, recycled cereal bags, and are about 5 inches square.

I’ll be making up a tutorial soon so you can make your own crinkle square.
