Have you ever been to a Busy Bag Swap?

I'm going to my first one in a few weeks and I'm excited! The idea is that you get 8-10 moms to each make a set number of "busy bags" (large storage size ziploc bags that contain an activity for your toddler/preschooler), the number of moms coming plus one to share/show the group. Each mom then leaves with 8-10 new bags of tricks for her child to play with. A cookie exchange, only with busy bags instead of cookies.
I'm making old fashioned lacing cards out of coated string and laminated card stock in a transportation theme. So far I have a car, train, bus, airplane and rocket ship. I'm working on a motorcycle, but it's a more complicated shape! Any other modes of transportation I'm missing?
