Entertaining a One-Year Old IV - Activity Bag Ideas

In case you missed it:

The idea behind an activity bag is that you have a simple, self-explanatory activity ready to go in a minute, in the car, at the doctor's office, etc. to help keep your toddler busy and entertained.

The concept behind an activity bag SWAP is that you get together with a group of moms, each one assigned to a different activity. You make multiples of the same activity, which helps cut down on your prep time and cost, and then you get together and swap them, going home with a great variety of activity bags for your child.

If you'd like more information on what an activity bag or activity bag swap is, check out these thinks:
