I came up with all of these fun travel ideas using great products from Office Depot as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #GearLove
Can you smell the paper and pencils? I have always loved office supply stores! All the paper, pencils, crayons, markers, folders… I frequent my local Office Depot sometimes just to get inspiration! As you know, we love travel and keeping the boys busy is something I’ve learned along the way. I thought it would be fun to pull together a collection of ideas using my favorite things from Office Depot. The best part is that you can save everything to use at home, work or on your next trip!
Post-it notes are so much fun when traveling. You can use the smaller sizes in the car on the window to create pictures or scenes.
This size Post-it notes are fun to use at your destination as well for large pixel art!
There’s always the traditional drawing or coloring (I always provide a mix of mediums – pencils, crayons, markers…) but you can make it more interesting by getting a new sketch pad and giving them drawing challenges like drawing change in scenery. You can also take turns adding on to the drawing with the whole family!
Dry erase boards have been a long time travel favorite of my boys and I love the new dry erase crayons to make things a bit cleaner. Use removable tape on the board to create game boards. It comes off easily so you can use the board for other games, like your own version of head’s up!
Office Depot also carries these great storage boxes so everything can get thrown into the box for easy transport!
Add in a few fun little toys, phone cords and Mom’s favorite Sharpie Pens and you have a box that will keep them busy long after you get to your destination!
