25 Toys in an Altoid Tin

This blog article was originally posted on my first blog In Our Pond.  I started out trying to put all my travel content on my homeschooling blog, but it grew to be too big.  So, I'm moving all the road trip stuff over here!  It'll probably take me a while to move all the posts, but I'll also be posting new content on here as well.  In Our Pond will now be exclusively for homeschooling and parenting content, while this blog (Party Through the USA) is for all the family travel posts.  Check them both out!


25 Altoid Tin Toys for Travel from In Our Pond

It's no secret on this blog that I love altoid tins.  I've talked about storing homeschooling supplies, math games, and math counters in them.  I've even talked about them in relationship to road trips before!  When I was getting ready for our beach vacation, I looked at altoid tins again.  There are many uses for these small metal tins, but travel toys has to be my favorite use.
