We are moving to Norfolk, VA for a year. We sold the house on the day the moving truck arrived! I will miss our yellow house with the great covered entrance... We spent a lot of time out there, and I hope the next family loves it as much as we did.
Wayyyy before the moving truck arrived, I somehow had a moment to throw together these little kits for Soleil (age 3.) Inside are little activities that are simple and easy for her to do on her own while we are in the hotel or even in a restaurant.
Here is what is inside:
1. Stickers and Circle Cardstock
2. Little cardboard squares (cut from a diaper box) and artist crayons and sharpener
3. Matching game made from foam shapes
4. Pony Beads and Pipe Cleaners
5. Blank Card, Glue Stick, Scraps of paper, more stickers. (not pictured)
For the trip, and for the multiple days in hotels, I also put together these boxes. The Snapware ones are particularly genius. I put activities for me, and the little kits for Soleil in the bottom, Toys and Bedtime books for Soleil in the top, and Tate had his own box with whatever he chose to put in it. We can bring the boxes in easily, and the kids know right where to go when it is time to play. They both also have one small canvas bag that they filled before we left, with whatever they wanted. (Those are easy to get into while they are in the car.)
My section contains a variety of felt, needles, small scissors, embroidery thread, small ruler, as well some magazines, a small sketch book, and pens. (I think the pens have been lifted by my children, but they were in there when we started this trip!)
