Busy Bags: Pizza!

So all of the previous bags that I made were strictly from materials I had laying around already. But I've had many ideas buzzing around that I have been compiling into a list, and finally went shopping for a few materials that I didn't have.

Among these items is felt pieces. Felt squares are very cheap, about 15 cents each for the plain ones. So I picked out several each of various colors.

And voila! We have pizza!

Our Pizza Busy Bag consists of one light brown triangle pizza crust, three circles of red pepperoni, two orange mushrooms, two green bell peppers, and a handful of cheese! And I think we are going to add some olives, onions, and sausage as well!

Grace, 8, LOVES this! She wants to play with it several times a week, and she expands the game by getting out the play dishes and playing restaurant. She takes our orders, (I prefer Vegetarian, Zak likes Pepperoni). She likes it so much I might have to make another one, just so she can feed two people at once! And she gets Kit completely involved, both as a customer, and busy in the kitchen. Kind of funny, I started making these bags with Kit in mind, but Grace is turning out to be the one that is most interested and plays with them the longest!


  1. Yummy, yummy! Variation on the tea parties you n Molly used to have. :)

  2. Endless possibilities! Keep kids busy in a dozen ways! Definitely need more!
