A puzzle in a frame, which I've packed inside a large folder to hold the pieces
A travel plasticine set (inspired by Christie at Childhood 101!)
Stickers and mini sticker album (not shown)
A Brain Quest quiz card set - not for the car, but I thought it might be useful while waiting at restaurants, etc.
Crayons and a mini colouring block for Princess Pea
A ball and a car for when we get there or for exercise stops along the way
Magnetic Dress-Up book with clothing magnets
A few figurines
Play mobile phones (a favourite!)
A hardback spiral notebook and our chunky homemade crayons for Sweet Pea
Our 5-A-Day books
An animal matching game
Some soft books that Sweet Pea can hold and read herself in the car
We'll also take:
One favourite snuggly for each of them
Maracas for each of them
A small, plastic teaset - cups, bowls, spoons (for imaginary play - they both love these)
Princess Pea's camera
This will probably be more than we need, but I find it's definitely better to overpack for the kids' amusement than underpack - if it's rains all week, we'll definitely need it all! I won't pack everything together, I'll just put a few items in their little bags, and add others as needed along the way.
