Disney Road Trip Gift Baskets

As you might have picked up on, we are driving the 8 hours down to Disneyland for our daughters 3rd birthday. Considering we are doing this with a 3 year old and a 15 month old I knew we needed a lot of entertainment and new fun toys to get us through the trip there and back. 

I put together each of the kids a gift basket filled with fun Disney themed items of stuff I picked up from a few different stores. Take a look:


I purchased the storage bins at Joann Fabrics on clearance and figured I could use them for storage in their bedrooms after the trip
I then printed their names using the Disney font on colored paper and pasted that to the bin
 


Considering how young our son is, he won't be getting as much stuff as our daughter 
He will have more "baby" toys in the car to play with as well


Books for him to flip through


I went mainly "Princess" theme with our daughters since she is going through a Princess stage in life :)
  

Hailey's includes coloring books, crayons, note books, temporary tattoos, counting cards, a toy camera, toy phone, Stitch coin purse, ball, 2 crowns, lots of books and a Minnie Mouse 


I even used some of the books we already had for the baskets.
I took them out of Hailey's bedroom about 2 months ago and stored them away for her to forget about them until the trip :)
 

I will let you know how much a hit there were when we are back!

    1. Thank you! I found the food was the most wanted items on the trip. The toys they ended up using in the hotel, but DVDS and food was best in the car :)

  5. I wish you and your family a wonderful fun time at Disneyland for your daughter's 3rd. b/d. I can remember going to Disneyland with my parents, husband, daughter and son somewhat younger than yours even. We went in the summer and phew was it hot and muggy. Winter is much better time to go due to cooler temps and hopefully not so many people in line for the rides. We lived in Tucson so had a long ride also.
    What a smart Mom you are to take things to keep the kids content. Hope all your hard work pans out. It's always interesting traveling with young children. Have fun what ever you all do and Happy B/d to Hailey.

  14. We do a lot of traveling. And we have a lot of kids. 5. (Holy cow, what were we thinking?) Anyway, we keep our kids occupied with audiobooks, and lots of them. There are a lot of sites where you can download them, but we use this one a lot because the stories are all free and they're original. How many times can you hear Red Riding Hood?! LOL. Here's the link if anyone is interested. http://www.twirlygirlshop.com/short-stories-for-kids
