Whether it’s a weekend jaunt or on an epic family vacation, chances are that you may need some help keeping your kids occupied on the journey. This DIY travel felt board is easy and inexpensive to make, but provides plenty of fun for young children while traveling. It’s a total boredom buster!
Plane and car rides should be a joyful extension of your family’s travel adventures. These moments will become a big part of your family’s shared memories, so be sure to put some careful thought and planning into this part of your travel experience.
I always keep two sets of these travel felt boards in my handbag. My kids love to play with them while on the road or in the air, but they are also perfect for any time your kids need some creative playtime. For instance, when you’re waiting for your meals to arrive while dining out.
To make your own travel felt board, all you need is some felt in various colors, a bottle of felt glue, scissors, a 1-gallon re-sealable storage bag and a couple smaller plastic sandwich bags.
