Fantastic Friday

With summer vacations and road trips approaching I thought I would share with you some of things I bring along to keep Piper entertained and happy in the car and also some neat ideas I have found on Pinterest.   *click highlighted words to go to Pinterest link.
1.  If your child loves to do puzzles, color, play with cars or magnets these trays are a must.  We did this and Piper loved it.

2.  A very hand way to keep snacks organized and not get squished.

3.  BooginHead Squeez'ems ~  fill with your own puree.

4.  Always pack a favorite blanket and a pillow.   I love the idea for this pillow,  I will be making it before our summer vacation(no more head on her knees for Piper)

5. Fist Aid Kit is a must, you know how crazy kids can be and you also know that someone just might get sick.  Germs are rampant!

6.   I love this idea for packing kids clothes,  you put the outfits together but they still get a choice.  I did this last year and it made getting ready for the day so easy.


I know there are many more ideas for travel out there and I would love to hear from you.  Which was your favorite in this list?   Maybe you have "pinned" or just have so great travel tip for kids or adults,  if so please leave a comment or link.   Thanks for joining me for another Fantastic Friday.

I made those pillows for my kids last year - even made one for Mommy/Daddy! :) I can't get them to put them on the seatbelt like they're supposed to, but they do use them all the same. Problem I have now is that they won't leave them in the car, so they never have them when they need them! They seem to also make convenient whacking sticks when one is angry, and can be used as a pretend worm in a pinch! lol... Need to try the snack box thing - maybe it would keep them from spreading snacks all over.

So many great ideas!! I love the chalkboard tray idea! Those trays really come in handy - we use them a lot for many different things in Kid's club at church. Love the idea of painting them with chalkboard paint!

I love all these great ideas! Now, if someone would just come up with a cure for motion sickness. My 14 yr old and 4 yr old are either sick or too drugged to enjoy anything everytime we go somewhere.

Gillian, sounds like the pillows are great for "everything".
Karen, so sorry your kids get sick, I get that way sometimes too. Have you ever tried http://www.sea-band.com/, I don't know if they work but it might be worth a try.
