Here is my bag of tricks that has helped me have a successful flight with a young toddler. Our little man has been on 6 trips (17 flights-including all the connections) in his first 12 months of life. So, I really believe in these tricks:-)
I have always enjoyed sending Thank You cards. Mainly, I enjoy the excuse to relive my childhood memories or writing hand-written letters. * I had 3 long-distance pen pals I wrote to throughout grades school. I miss the excitement of getting an envelope in the mail. The only thing I don’t like about sending cards is that they are often SO expensive.
When I don’t have time for crafting, buying cards at the Dollar store is my go-to, but that still leaves you at $1/card. So, here’s an easy way to make your own for about $0.25 / piece.
I just learned this trick from my mother-in-law over the Christmas break and it has changed my life! (Sorry. That might seem a bit dramatic, but I swear I mean it genuinely). Why?
1. It is a “green” solution because it involves reusing something that would otherwise be thrown away.
2. It makes NO MESS for a cooking task I do at least twice a month.
