There are always so many last minute things to do before leaving for a vacation and, if you're like us, you leave packing until the end. And somehow we always find ourselves packing for the whole family because, if left to their own devices, kids might pack eight pairs of pjs, a tutu and rollerskates... Erin of House on Hill Road enlists the help of her kids when packing, but with a little direction. She's devised a clever packing guide with drawn pictures for each child to follow. It lets them help out, but prevents your having to repack everything in the end. She also suggests trying this for grocery shopping and sending them out on a scavenger hunt in the store.
Looks like a great idea to us! House on Hill Road is a beautiful, inspiring blog - we hope you can visit.
