Yes, I realize that it is about the end of summer time, but there is still ample time to be getting out on a quick road trip or two.  If so, are you prepared?  Do you know how to make the trip a bit easier to tolerate and perhaps even curtail the dreaded question of “Are we there yet?”

The answer is in this E-Book called Travel Kits, A Simple Way to Bless Others by Donna Rees.  Travel Kits is an E-book the explains step by step how to put together a little traveling intervention, shall we say.  This great resource explains how to put together a nice goody bag (or box) full of presents to dole out to the inhabitants of the vehicle, and even gives some great ideas on what to get for whom and where to find the items.  However, for me, the absolute best part was chapter 13.  Chapter 13 was like an appendix of sort that has a list of hyperlinked websites for games you can play in the car, easy crafts you can do in the car and even the official state tourist information site for each of the states and U.S. Territories.  There is also a handy checklist for preparing your car for a long trip and even suggestions (and a few terrific looking recipes) to pack a great picnic lunch.  I don’t know about you, but the last lllllooooonnnnnnggggg road trip we took, well, the lunch didn’t survive as well as I thought it would (yeah, squashed bread, frozen egg salad, it wasn’t great).  I wish I had this book then for the incredible wrap recipes.

Travel kits

This book does not only have to apply to traveling with children.  You could put together a kit for newlyweds for their honeymoon, a kid going away to camp, or even for someone in the hospital.  This is a great springboard for growing other ideas to bless others.

Travel Kits is available from The Old Schoolhouse Store for a mere $12.45 that you can instantly download to your computer (yay!  No waiting for it to come in the mail!)   The Old Schoolhouse Store is chock full of wonderful resources for homeschooling and carry so many products that I can’t list them all for you.  You will just have to go on over and browse.  I will tell you that there you can get E-books for many different topics, instructions on how to make a wide variety of lapbooks and of course, the wonderful magazine The Old Schoolhouse.

I recieved a copy of Travel Kits, a Simple Way to Bless Others by Donna Rees from The Old Schoolhouse Store as a part of the TOS Crew in exchange for my honest opinion and posting of a review.  I received no other compensation.  All opinions in this review are mine and mine alone..

  1. Great review! I’m stopping by for a TOS crew hello. Is that your home on the blog header? Your blog is beautiful!

  2. Great review! We’ve had the squashed bread, too. I’ve never tried to freeze egg salad, though. I didn’t know you could. The wraps do sound better, and I’ll have to remember to look that up before our next road trip.

    • You can’t freze egg salad. Well, I don’t recomend it 🙂 had it in my covered glass dish directly on the ice in the cooler. Trust me, it gets a weird texture when frozen, and as it thaws it gets watery.

  3. I’m visiting from the TOS crew. I enjoyed your review, thank you. (and you’re right! I’ve learned the hard way that it’s not wise to freeze mayo!)
