I’ve been brainstorming ideas to keep my 20 month old happy on our upcoming airplane ride to Florida. She is a busy body who is not into TV and only reads two books – Once Upon a Potty and Pinkalicious. I took a trip to Walmart and Toys ‘r Us to see if I could find some little toys that would keep her entertained. I came away with a book of stickers and a small pad of paper, a Pop On Pals dog, a Tinkerbell toy, and a baby doll that cries when you take away her pacifier. I will also have my iPad which has several apps that she really enjoys.
I know for the 3.5 hour flight I will really need several activities, but they can’t take up a lot of room – we are packing as light as possible because we don’t want to have to check more than one piece of luggage.
Two cars are parked in the garage and can drive on the chalkboard fabric road. The middle door opens to reveal a felt cat and dog that can play with either their fish or their bone. When you remove the dog and cat, they reveal pictures of our two family members that we will have to leave at home (adhered to the fabric with Mod Podge)! Lastly there is a velcro closure pouch to hold a few smaller toys – a Polly Pocket and a couple of Littlest Pet Shops.
I actually messed up on the back – but was halfway done when I realized it, so just went with it. The flaps were actually suppose to flip UP so that no velcro was necessary to hold them shut – and I still recommend you make it that way if you choose to try this!
