I can say I have never in my life taken this much time to plan for anything (I planned my wedding in 2 months, no lie) but I have been planning this list for close to 8 months now. I will say having our A/C die a fiery death last week really helped me figure out what I needed to bring with. The Princess is extremely creative and crafty but wants to make collages opposed to coloring. The Booga is almost 3, scissors and glue = BAD so I needed non-messy stuff for him. I went though and compiled a list for everyone. I think it will help at least keep a little peace for long trips, a trip to grandma’s house or a good start to a Crafty Girl or Boy Scout Troop Box.
