The Church Bag

It took me too long to realize if you want to be able to listen in church, the kids need a church bag. I made one when Koby was about 2, but I have been trying to come up with new ideas to add to it ever since. As we all know, Koby is an active little guy and it takes alot to make him sit. The church bag buys us a little time of peace and quiet in church. Anyways, I hope this helps some young mom trying to make it through a plane ride, or a church meeting. It has definitely helped our family!

I don't know why I didn't think of this one sooner! I bought some cool stickers, magnet paper, and a cheap magnet board.
I made file folder magnet games at our Mother's Club (Thanks to my friend Crystal and our host, Laura)
Wooly Willy! Target party favor isle. This keeps Koby entertained for at least 10 minutes:)
Pony beads and yarn
Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa DeFreese for the sticker book!
Finger puppets
Crayons in the shape of dump trucks and a sticker book. Koby's friend Nixon handed these out at his party.Thanks Kandis for this one!
I just finished these today! Felt Mr. and Mrs.Potato Head. I'm pretty proud of my clever idea here:) Just don't look too closely at my sewing job...
I let Koby test them out before they went into the church bag. He loved them!

*Important: DO NOT put silly putty in a church bag for a 2 year old. It makes for a MESSY lesson:)

I love your potato heads. Did you sew the bodies to the boards? Also, are the white bits velcro?
