Bag of Tricks
I keep a “Bag of Tricks” that is ONLY used when we have the little ones with us and are waiting at restaurants, doctors’ offices, etc. I keep it in the car, and I add new items when I find interesting things around the house, freebies, or things from discount stores. I can’t tell you how many times the Bag of Tricks has occupied grandchildren or visiting friends and kept them from getting into trouble. Some of the items can be used independently, and others are things that I can do with them. Where. Has. This. Been. All. My. Life?
