Description

After giving my young cousin one of these I-Spy Bags for his birthday, my aunt commissioned me to make one for her to gift to another little boy. Talk about knowing you made a great gift!! :)

This is the third bag I've made and they're so easy and quick to put together...the hardest part is honestly finding the things to go inside them! Because the kids I've given these to are very young, I like to take a photo of the items that are contained inside and laminate it rather than just writing out a list of what's inside. This makes it an easy 'quiet' activity for the kids who can't read yet to do if mom needs to keep them occupied. (Tho more than one mom has admitted to enjoying playing with them a bit as well. LOL) 

Blogged about it HERE. I made up my own method for making these after seeing a pic, but I included a link to a tute to make your own as well as my own little tips & tricks. :)

So adorable! And what little kid doesn't need a quiet activity (and mom's too!) to keep them busy at a appointment or even a long car ride. Great gift!

I just love this and my son would have too when younger as the I spy books were well used at our house. I also think your improvements are huge!! What a great gift:-)
