TOS Travel Kits Review



Today's review is an e-book from The Old Schoolhouse called Travel Kits: A Simple Way to Bless Others.

This was a fun review that I found perfect for summer time weather!  In this e-book you will find lots of ideas for putting together travel kits for your family or as a gift to other families.  The book starts out describing kits you can assemble as a way to make car trips more fun for families who have to travel whether it be a 1 hour trip or a 14 hour trip.   A long trip in a car with an unhappy 2 year old can be a nightmare!  And buckets can come in handy sometimes - don't ask me how I know!!

As I continued to read I was thinking this really doesn't apply to our family that much.  We don't travel a lot as a family.  All of our families live pretty close by.   My kids are way past the toddler stage.  And then I kept on reading and discovered that the ideas in this e-book go well beyond that of a traveling family. 

The ideas you will find can be tweaked to fill a basket, bucket, bag or any item to bless a family in almost any situation!  You could make kits for new college students, kids going away to camp, missionary families, your pastor's family during vacation, a simple trip to the dentist, a soccer game, etc.  The possibilities are really endless!

Inside the e-book is loaded with what you can put inside your travel kits. 
Some of the categories include...
  • gifts for girls
  • gifts for boys
  • cheap gifts
  • pricey gifts
  • homemade gifts
  • books including a reading list that I think would be great for homeschool literature list and it is even broken down by age =)
  • custom gifts
  • gifts for mom
  • gifts for dad
  • different ways to wrap the gifts
  • different container options to present the gifts
  • and lots more!

I am going to print this out as a manual to go on our bookshelf because it is loaded with ideas that I could use as a resource in our home. 
This would be great to use as a ministry for our homeschool too. There is nothing more educational than sharing the love of Jesus with others!

Pros for me (since I didn't get my children's input on this one)
  • great details with lots of ideas
  • simple read
  • literature list
  • based on Christian principles - Luke 6:31

Cons for me (since I didn't get my children's input on this one)
  • price is a little too much for our family
