Fact Flash Cards
Okay, I thought I was done posting until we left on our trip, but I did want to share one last thing. As any mother that LOVES to travel on an airplane with little ones (ha!), I tend to try and pack their carry-on backpacks with fun new things to look at and play with. But I can't justify spending very much money. So on a trip to Target yesterday, I stocked up some some $1bin flashcards...US state trivia, US presidential facts (hopefully only the "age-appropriate ones:-)), and world landmarks. Each has a picture on one side and fun facts and trivia on the back. I simply punch a hole in the corner of each card and string them on a binder ring. That way they stay together, are easy to control and don't get lost between the icky airplane seats.
