Four days left until we tackle the long drive to Disney.
In order to make the trip more pleasant for the kids,
and for us,
we put together a bag of surprises for both the Princess and the Professor.
Each bag is filled to the brim with goodies, games, snacks, movies and lots of other fun and time consuming items.
More specifically, some of the items are:
Pad of paper
Colourful dot stickers
Bubble Wrap – at least for as long as Daddy can stand it…Yikes!
Ninjago DS game – Professor
Pixar Leappad – Princess
Spiderman/Brave Napkins – for those messy little hands
Wet Wipes – for those messier little hands
Stickers, stickers and more stickers
Activity books of all kinds
Flat Stanley Books for the Little Professor
Pop Rocks – to try for the first time
Lots and lots of yummy snacks!
Some of my favourite items are:
which look fun and yummy…
We are looking at about 50 hours of vehicle time on this trip, so we want to be prepared. We’re going to break the trip up into 11 hours of driving the first day. At that point we’re going to stop at a KOA and go for a swim, have nice dinner, and get a good nights sleep. The next day we’ll wake up super early and do another 10 hours and repeat the process. Stop at an KOA, swim, eat, and sleep.
That will leave us with a 3 hour drive to Disney!
As I’m writing this, Daddy is putting together a playlist of Disney songs that we’ll play for the kids along the way.
We’re so exited to start our vacation!
We will be leaving around 2am so that the kids can sleep for the first part of the trip. I can’t wait to see their little faces when they wake up to their goody bags and find out what’s in them!
