The other night I finished a project to take as a boredom buster for the airport and our travels. Thought I'd show it since it was fun and easy to do. I used a lid and traced circles from felt and matching fabric then sewed them up and trimmed with pinking shears for a fun finished look. The idea is to have it be a matching game.
When I showed my completed work to Hubby he guessed they were coasters! Well I guess if we loose some or get bored of them then that will be their purpose in their next life!
One more shot showing the fabric and felt side together.
On our Sault Ste. Marie to Michigan to Ohio trip I made these clothespin dolls and they were a hit with little hands. My son kept saying "Take me to your leader" with the robot one!
While we were in Ohio Auntie JB gifted us with these adorable finger puppets and let me tell you they are the bomb diggity! They have come in handy at a doctor and a dermatology appointment and several grocery shopping trips as well as our trip to Buffalo, NY.
I also love the dollar store for some good travel finds like these little miniature animals. We have some other stuff like stickers and I print off tracing and coloring sheets for them as well. Next time we travel I hope to make some crayon rolls as those would come in handy. I'd love to hear what travel activities your kids like!
