Nuts and Bolts

Here is another busy bag idea to add to your collection.  This is one of our favorites.  It is really great for the fine motor skills.  At our Moms group we had a busy bag exchange and this was one that one of the other moms made to trade.  She simply purchased one bolt and a few nuts, washers and wing nuts of the same size.  The larger it is the easier it will be for little fingers to assemble.  Make sure the end of the bolt is flat not pointed!!

Difficulty: Easy

Supplies Needed

  • 1 large bolt
  • 4 few nuts,
  • 4 washers
  • 2 wing nuts
  • A small container to keep them in


You can switch up how many of each item you put in the bag, depending on how many kids you have and what their ages are.
