Do you dread packing up the car and heading out with the kids for a long trip?
Would you rather never visit a doctor's office with your children again, due to the long wait and impatient children?
I've just been reading through an eBook sold by The Old Schoolhouse Store, called Travel Kits: A Simple Way to Bless Others.
The author, Donna Rees, realized years ago when her own children were young, that trips, waiting times at doctors' offices, and many other “waiting” periods of time could go so much smoother if her children had a few surprises during the day to encourage them and keep their attention.
It was so successful with her own children that she began providing similar “kits” or “Travel Kits” to other families who were planning trips or vacations. That's how Travel Kits began: Mrs. Rees gathered her years of experience in being a blessing to others and has written it all down for us to enjoy.
Also, I would encourage families to be careful to avoid toys, gifts, and snacks that would melt or be unsafe in a hot car during the summer: crayons, chocolate, very inexpensive plastic water bottles, etc.
I personally haven't made a Travel Kit for our children this summer, because we haven't gone on any trips where it was required. However, I'm full of ideas now that I've read Travel Kits! If only the long trips would be a part of our summer! We do love to travel as a family. After my children skimmed through the Travel Kits eBook, they were asking to go on a long trip somewhere...anywhere...as long as they get a travel kit for themselves!
Designing a travel kit for a child can take as little or as long as you have to spend on being creative with this kind of project.
Travel Kits is useful for children and adults of all ages. Plenty of suggestions for adults are also included, so that was fun to read about.
I received one electronic copy of Travel Kits from The Old Schoolhouse Store in exchange for writing an unbiased review. No other compensation was provided.
