Last time we did a big trip with Emilia was in 2011 when we went to Paris and London and she was 2 1/2. We had a great time and to engage her in what we were seeing, I made her these little travel cards (which she loved).
We're headed to London for the next week or so, and since she's now 4 1/2, I wanted to create something that would help her to interact and engage in a deeper way with what we are going to see and do...as well as something that the three of us can work on together to make this a memorable trip for all of us.
The travel kit:
Each day has a folder with a small sketchbook, activity cards, and pocket for her to store photos (we got her this camera) and treasures she finds, and a map (there's only one map). I have a little bag for her to carry one folder in, as well as something to draw with.
The insert/activity cards:
The small sketchbooks:
A huge thanks to Julie and Shelley for helping me come up with activities!!!
