Road trip clips: One clip for each kid.... If they are sweet, clip stays up, if they are not, clip comes down. Everyone with a clip on the visor gets a treat at the next stop :-) love this idea!!!

After the kiddos are done their regular chores they can pick a work for hire job to get money. GREAT IDEA!

Totally doing this. Maybe wedding gift, or college graduation though. Not high school. Lol

Use shower baskets to stick to the window on road trips to hold markers and other trinkets!

This made me laugh...oh the memories of 'unique' items rescued from the pockets of little boys (and big boys too)!

I wish my mom did this for me. File folders for K-12 to hold memorable school items and showcase that years school photo.

Cinnamon in the Sandbox--- Did anyone else know this???? Now that its getting warmer, the kids are going to want to play in the sandbox. Cinnamon in the Sandbox keeps the bugs away! I knew cinnamon repelled ants... but I never thought of this! Brilliant! Ive also heard it will keep the cats out. Share with friends!

Last day of school holding a picture from the first day of school...would be cute to do the first or last day of Senior Year as well...with the kindergarten picture!

Finger Twister Game - $4.99 // I bet you could easily make this for a simple party favor. Or for tables for guest to play with while waiting for food.

Prayer Pail- Have the kids pick a stick out of the pail to pray for at dinner prayers. This seems like a great way to teach little ones to consider others in their prayers.

Chore door knob hanger. Door hanger that says "to do" and "done". Clothes pins with the chore are on the "to do" side and when the child does the chore move they move it to the "done" side.

Long car trip goody bags- numbered so they can open a new one every hour. Also lets them know "how much longer" is left.

Kids or no kids, these ideas are worth looking at. Ideas for how to replace TV/computer/iPad/iPhone time with something better.

Car trip games

I'm facinated by this new site, wittlebee. You select your size, weather, colors, etc, and they send you a box full of kids clothes for $40 a month.

fishing for magnetic letters in the bath tub -- great activity for winter days. This site has SO many fun things for kids to do!!

Ideas for waiting with kids when you're out to eat. Love this!! So much better than cell phone games at a restaurant.

Traveling with young kids made easy: Put an entire outfit (including undies and hair accessories) in a ziploc bag. One bag per day. When you get to the hotel, they can pick one per day. Huge time saver! plus dirty clothes don't get mixed in with clean ones ! Great for Camp, too
