About

Handmade treasures for your busy little bee

"Handmade treasures for your busy little bee” is exactly what you will find when you shop at Two Busy Little Bees.

Sister owners, designers and creators of Two Busy Little Bees use up-cycled materials, original designs, and love when crafting our one of a kind books and activities for children.

A Little History; Our mother passed down to our children handmade fabric books “busy books” that were initially made for us by our grandmother. Reliving memories by seeing these books in our children’s hands, we recognized the need for such a treasure for other children. We set to develop a quality line of books for a variety of ages and abilities that have an educational undertone with sensory and fine motor applications. The uniqueness of every book is that it includes designs on each page that reuse materials found in our everyday lives. Our practice of reusing materials is not only for the sake of memories but for mother earth as well.
