Road Trip!

Hey Sweets, Michelle here! I’m back again to share a fun little travel “game” that I made for our upcoming trip to Disneyland! We’re driving instead of flying this year – about 1200 miles – and I’ve found over the years that road trips with kids are much more fun when you make travel games.

So I created a fun “trip tracker” to hang in our van to track our drive! I found a similar idea online and then set out to create a more personalized one…using Sweet stamps of course!

Then I used the Blocked Alpha set to stamp some city names that we’ll be stopping at (or at least driving through). This set is great for stamping out full words – I was even able to stamp out Sacramento all on one block!

As we drive along on our trip we can move the camper along the tags until we arrive at our destination!! To hang the tags I used some jute twine and clothespins that I decorated with some patterned paper.

As I was creating these tags my oldest daughter saw what I was doing & said “how cute!” And then she realized just how far our trip is going to be! Fun and a geography lesson 🙂

And here they are all hung up in our van:
