One of my favorite memories of family travel growing up are the journals and sketchbooks my mom would bring for us. So I always make sure to tuck a few in when I pack for our own family travel.
Helping kids start a journal gives them a way to save and value their artistic efforts.
I remember making potato stamp Valentine cards with my mom. We would create all day!
Kids love to create their own DIY gift wrap. And these hand painted gift bags are super fun to make and darling for wrapping too.
I am a big fan of planning family meals an entire month at a time and every time I share our monthly meal plan (you can find them all here!), I get lots of questions about how I get it done. Yes, it takes a little extra time up front, but I find that it saves me so much time, money, and effort in the end.
