30 Printable Road Trip Games for Your Kids

Road trips in the summer are one of the great American pastimes. The kids are out of school and there’s no more snow on the road. Millions of American families take advantage of this and pack up and head to a national park, local campsite, or a fun city for some sightseeing.

But the drive to your destination is not always the most entertaining part. In fact, sometimes it can be downright boring. Hundreds of miles of straight, flat roads will test anyone’s attention span, especially a kid’s.

Organized Sewing

If you know me, I LOVE organizing...bits, bobbles, clothes, shoes, pantry items, toys, washi tape, etc. There are certain areas that get pushed aside until I just can't take it anymore. Sewing is a newer hobby of mine but I should really preface that with, I sew PAPER, not clothing. This bag of stuff slowly accumulated and I needed a better solution, so off to the store I went.

You can find this ArtBin Sew-lutions box pretty much anywhere sewing supplies are sold, I think I picked mine up from Michael's, isn't the name catchy? Sew-lutions. Genius!

I color coordinated my bobbins and added all the little bits to the clear lidded box and now my sewing stuff is much easier to untangle. My large spools of thread are still in their zip lock baggie, until I find a new solution but at least my bobbins are enjoying their color coordinated home.
