My Daughter and Her Yoga Class

In the midst of my busy morning of laundry, packing, and gift wrapping, my daughter said, “Mommy, come look at my yoga class.” The scene stopped me dead in my tracks and I was the proudest mommy alive.

Busy Bags and Marvelous Moms



What fun we had today! I hosted a ‘Busy Bags’ event at my house and as much as I procrastinated and cussed at myself for not really putting my best foot forward, I am so thankful to have been a part of this.

For those of you not in the mommy, play date, toddler phase of life, here’s what we did. We each found an 
activity, most likely from Pinterest or a mommy blog. We created and assembled the parts for said activity in 10 sets. We announced our choice of activity to avoid duplicates. Then we came together with our kids and shared our creations. These activities are designed to keep the child ‘busy’ learning about colors, numbers, etc. and using fine motor skills. BRILLIANT!

My immediate thought after receiving nine awesome busy bags: If we kept this up on a regular basis, we might never have to go to a toy store again! The problem with that is the time consumption. It does take time to decide on your activity, buy the materials, assemble the materials, and make 10 sets.

But my overall feeling about this type of event brings to mind the African proverb, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ How cool is it that we all took the time, money, energy, and creative thinking to do this for each other’s kids? I, for one, feel honored and proud.

I think these pictures of my daughter after the ‘party’ say it all. She had to be so patient to wait until all the kids left to try her new games. But she was amazing. I loved watching her discover, learn, play, and celebrate.

Thanks village mamas! Let’s do it again sometime.
