Disney Road Trip and Travel Ideas

Image
Now that the kids are back in school, crowds at the Disney parks are a lot less.  Cooler temperatures mean that it's also a great time to be outside all day.  For today's Travel Time Tuesday, I've collected up all my Disney blog post so they're easy for my readers to find and use.




After booking your vacation, it's time to start the countdown!  There are so many fun and adorable online.  I collected my favorites in the post you can access by clicking on the picture.  Which one is will you chose?




This colorful "Hidden Mickey" matching game fits into an Altoid tin for easy transportation.  Great for teaching colors to a preschooler, too.  Print your own copy by clicking on the picture.

DIY Airplane Activities for Kids

Image
Several months ago, my friend took her two little children on an overseas airplane flight for the first time in their lives.  I was so excited to provide some activities for her kids that were small, portable, and had lots of play potential for different skill levels.  Since I usually write about and create for road trips, I had a lot of fun putting together this list for all of you, too.



I had some leftover plastic spider rings from Halloween time, so I thought a Catch a Spider game would be perfect.  I cut the backs off of the spiders and added a pair of tweezers.  The child can use the tweezers (so great for fine motor skills) to pick up the arachnids and move them in and out of the tin.  I added some counting cards to expand the play into a learning opportunity.  I included cards 1-5 because of the kids' ages and 15 spiders so they could make a number line.  Click on the picture to see the original blog post.




As part of donut week this year, I created this donut matching game

How to Plan a Pumpkin Spice Road Trip

Image
I know that it seems really early to start talking about fall things like pumpkins, but Starbucks signature drink, the Pumpkin Spice Latte, has already been available for over a week now!  Since people tend to go crazy about pumpkin, I thought it might be fun to plan a gourd themed road trip.  These food and activities are perfect for a long drive through autumn leaves.
