Travel Games


Summer is a big time for road trips, especially with all the stay-cations and day trips we've been taking this summer. 
I created this tin for my kids to keep in the car full of games to play when they are bored (and driving me crazy!). There's even a tic tac toe game on the back, made from Round 25 Bubble Caps and Square 20 Bubble Caps from Epiphany Crafts and a few magnets. Inside is a mini checkers game, a deck of cards, 2 dice, and a mini Mad Libs with a pen. 
 If 4 games is not enough, you can just beat the kids over the head with the tin. Okay, maybe just stop for a potty break if you start having those thoughts and keep the tin nice and pretty and the kids safe ;) Happy Travels!

It started with jewelry, beading, sewing, home decor, painting, basket weaving, pottery, and cross-stitch. Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old a girl is selling her wares at craft fairs as far as her parents and grandparents would drive her. These days, Jennifer enjoys crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. Her style is approachable and she wants everyone who sees her work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.

  1. OMG! I just heard about you over on Donna Downey’s site, thought I would check out another cool ETSY but your post hit a nerve. Love the travel tin and extra curricular ideas for the tin, LOL! Did you travel with my family back and forth across the country in the family car for “fun” when you were a kid, too?
