Activity Kit for Little Travellers

Prior to our Australia trip, I came across mamapapabubba (on pinterest) which has a splendid idea of having an activity kit for little travelers. I love the activities that Jen does with her girl: the sensory bins, all the play dough, and the practical handmade gifts. She inspires me to want to do the same with C too! I discussed with my husband, he chipped in some ideas and we went to do some shopping at Daiso and Popular Bookstore.

For the activities taken from Jen’s post, I followed the links provided, and googled for my own resources for the rest of the activities.

Besides the name, I added some basic shapes. I also cut a large piece of felt and glued it to folder.

 

4. Lacing Cards

The animals are taken from here. We print, laminate, and hole-punch the cards.

5. Flash Cards

I love the graphics of the flashcards which the husband has found. I must say that C isnt really into flash cards for now.

6. Colour Matching Ice Cream

All the activities are stored individually in B5 size pouches. We got a variety from Daiso and Popular.

Each time we need to use them like on the plane and traveling long distances, we select a few and keep them in a portable folder like this:

These activity kits are still useful after the trip. We keep a few in the car and bring a couple of them out if we foresee some waiting here and there. Next up, I will be sharing on our itinerary with details of where we visited, where we stayed etc. The rest of this series can be found here:
