A Number Gobbling Busy Bag (with free PDF download!)

Sharks and boys seem to go together.  That's what makes this busy bag so perfect for Benjamin, my 4-year-old who dislikes the idea of sitting down to do school, but loves the idea of an activity or game! 

The Number Gobbling Busy Bag teaches counting and number recognition and introduces preschoolers to the concepts of 'greater than' and 'less than' with a fun, hands-on game. 

Younger children count the colorful stars on each card and choose a shark to eat the larger amount. 

Older children switch to cards with written numerals and choose a shark to eat the larger number. 


Would you like to print one for your preschooler?

Busy bags are an excellent way to engage toddlers and preschoolers while the older children are doing schoolwork or homework.  They are also a way to occupy children who need to be quiet during church or at the doctor's office.  I am gradually introducing new busy bags into our morning school time with my 2-year-old and 4-year old. 

Would you be interested in hearing  about some of our other busy bags? 


  1. Oh, I love it! Thanks so much for the printable, it looks great. I'm adding it to my print and laminate list :)

    I'd love for you to add it to our Busy Bag & Quiet Activity Linky (it'll be open for at least a few months).

  2. I think my boys will LOVE this! Chomp, chomp... :)
