It’s summertime and that means a lot of us are going to be taking trips to visit family or see different parts of the world (or both!). One of the challenges of doing this with kids is that they tend to get bored rather quickly, whether you’re driving in a car, RV or flying in a plane. I don’t know about you but when we’re doing road trips, I always try to think of different things that will keep the kids busy so that I don’t have to hear “Are we there yet?” or “How much longer?” a million times.
That’s why I am in love with these Busy Bag tutorials! They’re fun to make and use while out on the road or even at home to cure those “I’m bored!” moments. Make several of these and introduce yours kids to them at different legs of your trip, so that when they’re done with one bag, they’ll be looking forward to moving on to the next bag & have a ton of fun!
