preschool busy box ideas

I need ideas for busy boxes for my almost 3 year old. She likes to sit at the table and do activities while I do schoolwork with ds so I thought it would be easier if I just had boxes ready. I can just pull out a few boxes for that day. Today I put some scissors and paper, glue, beads, a piece of yarn, a workbook page (because he insists), and her learning binder we do together on the table. She had so much fun! Activities must be things she can do on her own with minimal guidance. They can't make a huge mess all over the table either.
My ideas so far...
Cut catalogs and paste
beading
Matching blocks to pattern strips
a magnetic bucket
Puzzles
Stamps

Any more ideas for me?

Snap together blocks, dry-erase books, tissue paper and pipe cleaners, books with read along CDs (if you have headphones).
