Busy Bag Series-Part 2

Shape Snake
This is day 2 of the busy bag series, if you don't have much time this is the project for you.  It only took me a about fifteen minutes to put this one together.  It teaches colors, shapes, pattern making and of course buttoning.

What you need:
different colors of felt
needle and thread
gallon bag

Cut out different shapes and colors of felt about 3 of the same shape and color if you want to practice pattern making. 

Cut a slit in the center of each shape just big enough the button will slip through.

Cut a piece of ribbon about 14 in" long burn or fray check each end, and sew a button on each end.

And there you have it, a shape snake that you can store away in a gallon bag for a rainy day, eventually I might print off cards with pattern ideas  for kids to copy.

I'll be back tomorrow with another busy bag idea.
