Finished Friday: I Spy Bags

I'm trying to hold myself accountable to finish some of the projects on my to do list by posting each Friday about a project I've completed. For the most part these projects aren't part of my daily or weekly household chores, although some weeks finishing those items is a challenge all in its own.
I found this great I Spy Bag idea at A girl and a glue gun and knew I wanted to make two, one for Emahry and one for Jonathan.

Kim used a zippered pencil pouch to make a super quick and easy I Spy Bag. Super quick and easy are my go to projects right now!

I found zippered pencil pouches at Walmart for 97 cents (they are better quality than the $1 versions the Dollar Tree carries). Then I went through the house and my craft stuff to find little bits and pieces to hide inside.

I divided the small objects into groups and placed them on a sheet of white paper. I took a picture of each group then placed the items in the pouch.

Once I had all the objects inside I added about 1 1/2 cups of Perler beads (any beads would work, but I bought a huge bag of these at a yard sale for 50 cents).

Then I zipped the pouch closed and used a glue gun to place a clump of hot glue over the zipper so the kids can't get them opened.

I cropped the photos in Picnik, printed and laminated them. Then I hole punched each corner and attached them to the pencil pouches with book rings (a mini carabiner would be great).

See, super quick and easy!

That is such a cute idea!! THanks for sharing. Our family has Sensory Processing issues and I have twin niece and nephew who would love this who I believe also have sensory issues. Sensory kids love this stuff!
