keep kids busy kit

Thank you so much for your uplifting comments and comforting words about my grandpa. It means so much!

Before we left I quickly put together a kit to keep my kids busy during our trip here to San Diego for my Grandpa's memorial service and to be here with my Grandma.
Board Books//Fabric Dolls//Bubbles//Paints, Brushes & Wood Shapes//Playdoh & Playdoh shapes//Gel Pens, Markers & Crayons to go with their Blank Book. Lastly, I made some alphabet chips to play with. Avery loves sounding out and asks me how to spell certain names and words. Quincey loves singing the alphabet and putting them in order.

I painted one side white and punched a circle piece of paper for the back side. Then I added felt alphabet letters to the opposite side.

It all fit together perfectly in a Something Splendid fabric bag.

What a cute idea! We will be traveling this weekend to visit family and I might have to steal some of your ideas for my daughter's bag.

What a cute idea! It's so great that you expose the girls to art and creativity so much, they are destined to be as crafty as you are! P.S. What happened to the dicussion of you chopping your hair?? I recently said good-bye to 10 inches....

Great idea. I teach kindergarten and those things would be a hit in my classroom. Also sorry to hear about your grandfather. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I hope you have a good trip...I'm sorry to hear about your grandpa. My dad has Parkinson's disease and has lost a lot of weight lately...I worry about him a lot. He's only 60, though! He has talked about death in a good way with us, though, he knows God will take care of him!

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa. It's always so hard to lose someone you love -- even when you know they are going to a good place and that you will see them again. But, you already know that, don't you. Did you know that we share something in common -- my dad was a diabetic and he died when I was a teenager. So hard. You are in my thoughts sweet Liz.

I'm so sorry for you and your family about your grandpa passing away... I felt so touched about your post because I felt very similar when my dad passed away (2,5 years ago).
I hope you all will be ok, hold on your memories with him and enjoy all the things he'd shared with you!

Huges,

Bea

Too fun! Your girls are lucky!!

What Instax Mini do you have? There are several models and a big price difference between model 7 and 25-any insight? Thx!!

Maria said...

oh Liz, I am so sorry to hear about your Grandpa. I lost my Grandfather last November and it still hurts. But you know you will see him again so I guess we have to think about that when it gets hard. Doesn't always work but tears are ok too.

Hugs to you!! xoxo

PS you will be missed at IU this year!!

Loved your alphabet chips, and wanted to give you a suggestion-I put magnets on the back of mine when my kids were younger and put them inside an altered lunchbox tin. Then I made a ringful of cards for them with pictures and a word next to them. For example, I'd have a picture of a ball and the word ball, a picture of each child with their name on it...they loved taking those whenever we took a road trip-they could look at the cards and make the words using their letters inside the lunchboxes.
