Giveaway — Kid Travel Kit (Super Cute!!)

Like many families around this time of year, ours is gearing up for a few road trips this Summer. I thought it would be fun to make a little travel kit for Emily — this one has a Roadside Scavenger Hunt Game! I sewed up a fun looking wallet to store everything. (Special thanks to Jennifer Casa for the inspiration!)

I illustrated the cards myself (because I’ll take any excuse to get crafty!) There are four of them, and they are laminated with clear contact paper. The first player to have four items marked off in a row is the winner! I included a spot for 2 wipe off markers.
I love how everything folds up so neat and tidy!
We took it for a test run earlier, and it was a big hit! (Although Emily seems to be quicker at finding things than I am!!) I had flashbacks of playing a similar game when my brother and I were little… and we went for some looooooooong car rides then. It’s a miracle we didn’t kill each other, really!
The markers work really went on the contact paper, and they wipe off easily with the eraser that is attached to the marker.
And it’s so easy for the kids to keep everything all together! Love that!!

You know how I LOVE to share a good thing!! There are a few Kid Travel Kits available in the Etsy Shop.

Now the fun part — One lucky reader will win a Kid’s Travel Kit just like this one!! Kit includes the fun wallet (sewn by me), 2 wipe off markers, and 4 laminated Roadside Scavenger Hunt cards (illustrated by yours truly). How FUN is that???
