Traveling entertainment

for my kids of course... Me and my kids are going to be traveling to Florida in a few weeks to see family. I wanted to make sure that I was able to keep them entertained without the seeming necessity of movies and video games.  So I scrolled through my blog reader to see what I could be inspired by.

I came across these posts which I loved.

This is the Scrap covered Clipboard from Dear Fii found here.

Then it was the how to Make a Magnet Chalkboard and travel bag from Fireflies and Jellybeans found here and here.

And this one here from Smashed Peas and Carrots. Chalkboard cloth, How awesome is that stuff. I bought a yard.

So I had all this inspriation and was thinking of something that my kids would be able to handle since they are both still pretty young. Since they will also be carrying backpacks, I wanted something that would fit inside and be easily portable without a lot of mess to go with it. Or at least too much of a mess, they are kids after all.

I came up with this.

I really hope that this will keep them entertained as we travel. Or at least enough so that I can have a turn listening to the radio or an audiobook while we are on the road.

As always let me know what you think.

Pillows for the kids.

I have dyed!
