Now we move on to our next adventure...our first family road trip. To Newcastle to visit wonderful friends and then to Dubbo to see the zoo.
I'm nervous, I don't know if we are going to like travelling this way and I don't really know how to prepare for it to be honest but I am just going with the flow. I don't know if I'll be able to blog while I am gone but I will try.
I did think a lot about the kids in the car. They got a few DVDs for Christmas to keep them entertained (I am thankful that my car has an inbuilt DVD player) and I have made them a travelling bingo game to keep them amused too.
I found a printable game online (I have no idea where, I just printed and didn't save it). I did have to look a bit harder for an Australian version. I printed it off, backed it on card and laminated it. I bought a packet of whiteboard markers to cross off the pictures and sewed up on one of my large pencil cases to store it in. Simple and quick (and I hope effective).
While I was sewing up pencil cases I made the kids' one for school next year. With so much planned for the rest of the school holidays I am wondering when I am ever going to get time to get any school supplies organised so I feel better knowing I at least have one thing done!
If you have any other suggestions or advice for a smooth and happy road trip I would love to hear them.
