12 Tips for Traveling with Kids



Over the River and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go.... I love that song but oh how times have changed.  Back when you took a sleigh and horse to grandmas is a thing of the past and we would rather take our cars and airplanes to get there fast.  Back in my flight attendant day I loved seeing families heading out for the holidays. I learned a lot about traveling with kids and the ins and outs of airport travel.  The good and the bad.  So today I am going to share with you my tips and trick to navigating your travel plans with kids! Because we all know if the kids are happy in the air or on the road, Mom and Dad are happy too!

Corn Cutting Tips


The other day a neighbor asked if I was interested in making freezer corn.  I was thrilled. So we went out to here garden at 6:30 in the morning and picked 230 ears of corn and headed home. While talking about the best way to cut it off the cob we looked at several corn cob cutters online.  After doing a little research we decided the one that would work the best was unavailable in our area. So we did the next best thing.  We used what we had and it worked great!

At Home Spa Hands Treatment



I love myself some soft hands.  So when I did a  Sally Hansen nail party (Here) I just had to share my quick and easy, at home spa hands treatment.   It's a little trick I learned while flying around the world as a flight attendant.   The air is so dry and as a flight attendant you are washing your hands all the time. It makes for dry, cracked and sometimes painful hands!  When your on an airplane you have very limited supplies. You of course have what's in your bag. Plus snacks and beverages.  I am not sure who came up with this Mini spa hands treatment but I am sure glad they did.

Cup of the Day {Organizer}

Do your have a Cup organizer for your kids??  With summer in full swing, my kids are in  and out of the kitchen.  I feel like we use every dish in the house, especially cups.  When the kids are in school I run the dishwasher once a day.  When they are home it feels like 2 or 3 sometimes.  So I looked around for a solution.  None of the ideas I have seen on the web seemed to work for my family.   So one day I saw this at TJMaxx for just $2.99.  It is a drawer organizer. Washable and it is the perfect size to fit on my counter top and hold the cups we have in our home.

I added vinyl letters to distinguish a slot for each kiddo and its ready.  One for Mom and Dad too.
Finally something to keep my summer days less messy!  This little tray has really cut down on dishes and doesn’t take up a lot of space. I love that they can grab a quick drink and head back to play without making a mess.
Like this tip??? Here are a few others you may like.  They make my life so much easier.

Cups and Straws Cleaning Tip

how to clean a straw www.freetimefrolics.com #cleaningtip


We all try and do our part, Right?  Help the environment, recycle, upcycle. 
(If Your a crafter Upcycle is your favorite!)   
Well I try to do my little part.  I am kind of a water brat.  I will not drink from the tap.  It tastes a little weird.  Maybe its from my Flight Attendant days. Not quite sure.
(I flew back in my glory days of no kids or responsibility. What a fantastic job. Just me, myself and I. Sometimes I miss those days.)
 We always drank bottled water.  Especially on the airplane. 
Well no more.  

I love these new cups with lids.  My girlfriend turned me onto them about 2 years ago.  I love them.  They are convenient and easy.  I find that I drink more water and feel better.  
I had just one hang up.  I could not drink anything but water in them. 
 The whole bacteria in the straw that I can't clean easily. Kind of Creeps me out.
 So I gave them up for a bit. 

I knew I wanted them back in my life so I came up with an easy method to clean that straw and keep the creeps out.

Supplies:
Dishsoap
Pipe cleaner

Fold one end of the pipe cleaner about 1 inch.
This may vary depending on the circumference of your straw. 
 You may need to fold it over twice.


Dab a dot of dish soap on the folded end of the Pipe Cleaner.



I use Hot water to flush the straw out then stick the Pipe Cleaner in the straw.
Twist, Turn and Pull in and out until your straw is to your standards.
You may have to do this to the other end if your pipe cleaner does not reach the end. 


Rinse well with hot water and all clean. 
No more gross things growing in your straw. 
Quick, Easy and Cheap.  

I kind of have a collection.  One for the car, the kitchen, the craft  room and my bedroom.  I picked up a few after Halloween for $2.  Yeah, for me. 
These also make fantastic gifts for Co-workers, teachers or family. 
Here are a few ideas. For gift giving ideas!
This is also a great way to clean your sippy cups if you have toddlers!

So buy a cup (They are only about $5), clean the straw (I just showed you how) and help save the Planet.

. Fill them with a fun little treat (and a pipe cleaner) and you are ready to go.

Easy Peasy!

Thanks for Looking.
