Spending time with your kids should be fun, relaxed, simple and stress-free.  After all, we all want to limit screen time and make more opportunities for hands on learning, but there is only so much time in the day.  You are busy!  (I get it!)  In order to make this a reality, every single amazing craft that you find at inthebagkidscrafts.com can be made from a limited and finite master list of craft supplies that fits into one bag.  All you have to do is keep it stocked, like a pantry.  You prep once (fill the bag), and let me do all the hard work while you reap the benefits.  Then any time you have a minute in your day, a hands-on activity is ready to go.  Easy peasy!  Plus, I will give you my tried and true OT (that’s my day job…pediatric occupational therapist) tips so that you can adapt any activity to the level of your child’s abilities and help your kids obtain vital skills for success in school and life.  Get the FREE printable supply list or use the Amazon links below to just fill your cart and go on with your day…

And Now for the Amazon Affiliate Links...

You may choose to just go to your local Dollar General, Walmart or Michael's to obtain these supplies. You probably already have half of these items in your home right now. However, if you are an Amazon girl, like me, here are some links that you can use to quickly fill your bag. Of course, you often have to buy in slightly larger quantity when doing craft supplies on Amazon. So, be prepared to have a little extra that won't fit in the bag. You will be set for awhile and have back up supplies on hand! How did we even function as a society before PRIME?!?
