Running Errands With Kids? Try The Trip Clip! (A review and a giveaway!)On Apr 24, 2015 Blog | Raising Arrows 11 Comments Tags: Give Aways, Homeschooling, Mothering, Parenting, What We Like
So, you know what’s fun? Running errands with your kids in tow. It’s a blast right?! It’s right up there with matching socks, getting a root canal, or responding to a jury duty summons. Oh come on! I know I am not the only one who sort of treasures those times when I can run to the bank, post office, and Target by myself and perhaps squeeeeeeze in a cuppa at the coffee shop. Bliss. Pure bliss.
But, let’s face it. Most of the time running errands means a lot of buckling and unbuckling car seats, finding public restrooms, answering “Are we done yet?” and “Can I have this?” over and over and over and over again. It’s just life. The mom life. And it takes mad skillz. (See our post on Grocery Shopping 101!!!)
Today, ladies and gents, it gets a lot easier! Enter: The Trip Clip.
We all know kids love to “help.” If only there was a way to harness all that “helpfulness” into something that was really helpful?! Well, there is! Invented by creative mom, Molly Rhoten, The Trip Clip helps you to create customizable lists for everything from grocery shopping, to library visits, to packing lists and chore charts! You log into the website, which is super user-friendly, create the lists you need and print them out! Then (here’s the fun part!) your child gets to use them on a colorful clipboard with a pen with multi-colors. **raise the roof**
Not only are there these amazing lists, but there are also things like car games, doodle pages, letter tracing, and coloring pages. Know what I’ve been using them for? Church! I use the pages that are writing a story and I ask the little ones to take notes during the sermon! And they can draw a little picture to go with the Scripture reading!
These little clipboards have made errands, long car rides, and long sermons so much better! The kids look forward to using them every time. I am looking forward to using them as we take a long road trip from the West Coast to the East Coast when we move! An added benefit is that following along with a list is helping their reading skills! #unschoolswoon
Such fun! And it’s about to get even more fun, ’cause we’re havin’ a giveaway! One happy winner will win a Trip Clip Bundle! This includes a clip board and pen in your color choice PLUS full-access to all the activities on the website! Let the happy car rides and errand running begin!!!
