Put an entire outfit (including undies and hair accessories) in a ziploc bag. One bag per day. When you get to the hotel, put the bags in a drawer and they can pick one per day. Did this for Disney trip. Put dirty clothes in bag at the end of the day.
Stop screaming at your kids! 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! OR Field Trip Clip.
Calming jar-tell child that they need a break and may come back when everything has settled to the bottom - I think I love this idea. Better than a simple time out for temper tantrums. May even help when you juSt need to calm down.
Buckets and Zip Ties--Great storage idea for a play room. Just drill small holes in the buckets' edges and connect with zip ties. Buckets can be found at craft stores. This would make a great nesting boxes for the chicken coop.
I think the kids need this at Nan's house :-)DIY Three-Level Bunk Beds. OR no bottom bunk, use the area as an office, shelf under the second level overhang thingy, then bed on the second level, and a loft area with bean bags and stuff on top!
