"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Made: My First "Busy Bag"....and a GIVEAWAY!!

I have seen all those cool "busy bags" for some time now, but my toddler was never old enough to do them independently.  

Now that she is, I decided to make one! And it won't be my last:)

Hanging Laundry Busy Bag:

I gathered all my spare felt I had:

Then I cut some clothes:

And there is the finished "busy bag"! One for me and one for....YOU!

I figured if I was cutting one for my children, I could just cut two of everything and have one to give away:)
All you need to do is leave a comment below! I will put all the names in a hat and let Raelynn choose the winner.  
If you can't figure out how to leave a comment but still want to enter, just drop me an email at 
abfrazey (at) gmail (dot) com  

We will draw a winner on September 10, because that is the day Elliana will be 10 months old! :) so it seems like a good day to have it!
Then I will contact you for your address and I will get it in the mail to you. Even if your tot can't use it quite yet, I hope you enter:)

*a little twist I put on my bag was the color on the clothes pins.  Just an extra activity that the child can match the color to the proper article of clothing.

**and I think it's pretty obvious, but to use this bag, you tie the string to something (I plan to use two chairs) and the child "hangs the laundry" on the clothesline with the clothes pins.

Here is a link to an amazing resource for busy bags! I plan to make more, so be watching for another giveaway:) if there is a few of you that comment, I would love to possibly put together a busy bag exchange! :)
