This would make a wonderful, cheap, educational gift for kids on your list! Jenae at I Can Teach My Child has the templates and instructions all prepared for you – all you need is some felt (as low as 25¢ a sheet), scissors, and glue! Go here to get all the details and the pattern.
If I would have thought ahead and had time I would have made this and some of the other “busy bag” ideas Money Saving Mom has been posting and gave just that to my nieces (age 2+4) for Christmas!
