Happy Little Travelers

Traveling with children, especially small children, can seem daunting. When travel involves long plane rides and/or car rides, it can seem terrifying! Over the past 6 years I have traveled in planes with my children to places like Peru, Hawaii, Japan, Alaska, and Iceland. Also, we do many quick, but long distance car rides. People say I’m crazy, but it is actually quite amazing. With traveling holidays approaching, I wanted to share a few thing that I always take with me for entertaining children on planes, trains, automobiles, and in hotels….

I have tried lots of different plans of attack to this regard, but have decided a few open ended toys and crafts go far and don’t take up too much space. Here are my favorite go-tos and why:

  1. Magnetic tiles like these wooden ones from Big Future Toys. These might be my favorite hands on toys for travel, home, restaurants, you name it. They never fail to quietly entertain for long periods of time. Not only do my children love them, I love them – because they intrigue the mind. They help foster creativity and problem solving and wonder. “How can I make this a certain way, what else can I do with these, what if I did this….” They keep those little wheels turning, and those faces smiling. Also, I love the natural material option of wood, as I always strive to rid my life of plastic and waste and bring in more natural options.
  2. Play Silks. Throw in a couple play silks, they compact to nearly nothing and weigh about the same. However, they can provide SO much entertainment. For babies, a simple peek a boo game or cuddle blankie. For toddlers and older kids there are an unending number of imaginative play ideas from babydoll carriers to puppet shows. Throw in a couple wooden clips and build some forts on the airplane seats.
  3. just a few small figurines and/or cars. A couple wooden peg dolls or animal figurines can lead into so many imaginative play sessions. Pretend they are going to where you are traveling at, what do they see and do? use the play silks to make a scene for them.
  4. Sketchbook and washable crayons or markers. Instead of stocking up on different coloring books and ‘travel’ art supplies, make it easy on yourself. A blank sketchbook and a pack of WASHABLE (because it’s not our plane or bedspread were staying on haha) crayons, pencils, or markers can lead to travel journaling, drawing, games, and more.
  5. Crafts. There are so many options for crafts out there. I have found once again that going with an open ended approach is better than bring specific kits and crafts. a few balls of yarn  and a small loom will provide a craft for preschoolers and up that will last much longer than 5 minutes. You can also try learning or teaching a new skill and throw in a crochet hook. Young kids may like weaving found objects into the loom for fun. The yarn can also be used as string for cats cradle or fort building or anything else you may dream up.
  6. Bees wax wraps. Obviously, bringing lots of snacks is a great idea. However, It can also become an activity. I love how my friend’s son used our handmade beeswax wraps to do origami! What a great idea for once the snack inside is gone!
  7. Lastly you will see a small pick up stix game. This was a new addition for me and turned out wonderfully. My 3 and 6 year old loved the game and we could also use the different colored sticks for sorting and counting activities.

Sleepykins // Birthday Bunk Beds

“Happy Happy  B I R T H D A Y   Eva Dear.  Happy days will come to you all year.  If I had a wish , that wish would be …. A very Happy Birthday to you from me!”

#ExtracuteEva just turned S I X !  What is this girl all about?  Bunk beds, dolls , books , her very special chalkboard wallpaper, traveling and  Hello Kitty. This cutie has more than an extra chromosome, she has spunk + MOXIE !  We decided to create a room for Eva that plays to her strengths, her talents, fosters creativity and is filled with all of her favorite things.  Last winter, Eva was hospitalized for a few weeks with Pneumonia. At the time, Eva was sharing a room with her little sister Elsie.  It wasn’t until the two were separated (during this time) that we noticed a huge personality difference in the girls.  Eva, being alone with one of us at the hospital became a little more confident, overly funny and goofy! A side to her we had never seen before.  Elsie became more independent around the house, and didn’t go out of her way to get attention.  Now don’t get me wrong, these two are very close as sisters, at times inseparable.  It became clear that Eva ( being the older sister) needed her own space and her own room.  That’s when we started planning moving Ethan out of his nursery and moving him in with Elsie, giving Eva her own room.

It took a little over a year to get Eva’s room just right.  She had been in a larger toddler bed and with her growing legs, it became necessary that we look into bigger beds for Eva. This past Christmas, we visited Grandma + Grandpa in South Carolina.  They had set up some old Bunk Beds in the spare room for the kids to sleep on.  We were certain that Elsie would be the first one to the top, but she wanted nothing to do with the bunk beds.  To our surprise, Eva climbed right on up and slept on the top bunk the whole vacation and then took it over again for Easter break.  She loved being up there, and her confidence shined as she knew her usually adventurous little sister didn’t want to climb up.  We decided, Birthday Bunk Beds for Eva! We not only found a new-in-the-box pink bunk bed set on Facebook Marketplace ( for under $100 ! ), but a similar mini bunk bed set for her dolls ( also found on Facebook Marketplace).  These bunk beds would be the perfect birthday gift for Eva’s 6th birthday, and the final touches on her new big girl room.  A special room for a very unique little girl.
