We had a bit of a trip today. A long journey to spend Thanksgiving with loved ones. We got all ready last night, knowing that our wake-up time was o'dark early. After the kids were asleep, I snuck a little something in each back pack.
My children enjoy crafts, and making something creative is a great way to pass the time on a trip. So for Farmer Boy, some Wikki Stix. For The Princess, a small wooden loom and some yarn. And for Little Warrior a mosaic sticker set. I found all of them at the Dollar Store, so it was not a big financial investment.
I think they enjoyed finding something unexpected in their bags, and having something to do with their hands as they sat.
