Travel Kits- A Simple Way to Bless Others

Travel Kits:  A Simple Way to Bless Others  Retail $12.45

As a member of the TOS Homeschool Review Crew I received this e-book to review.

I have to admit that, up until reading this e-book, my idea of travel kit was a bag of books and a cooler of pop. By author Donna Rees,  this book is packed full of ideas, useful for kids of all ages, to enable the "kit" creator to meet every ones entertainment needs.  From origami to snacks, card games to calculator games; this 93 page e-book has awesome ideas.   For a sample of the table of contents and a few pages click here and enjoy a small download.  This e-book is one of the many offerings created by the publishers of Old Schoolhouse Magazine.

I probably wouldn't utilize this book to it's fullest extent, mainly because we don't travel a bunch and neither does anyone we know.   On the other hand, I found a few simple ideas to entertain the kids on small trips to and from Gma's and Gpa's.  I absolutely loved the puzzle books and card games that were suggested.  The travel size handheld games and small two person travel board games, were great ideas.  The individual sized snacks were so ingenious, rather than passing around bigger bags of things that often get spilled.

The other problem is that I'm just not "crafty".  Never have been, probably never will be.  I don't have a creative bone in my body.  To me stuffing all of this in a backpack makes sense.  I can see how it would be more fun wrapped and pretty, just probably wouldn't do it.

I'm sure if you pop over here,  you'll be able to find a whole bunch of fun reviews on this product from people a lot more creative and craftier than me.
