We are hittin' the road this week!  My family and I are hopping a flight to Las Vegas, renting a car and taking an almost 3000 mile road trip all around California.  It's my first trip to the golden state and we are taking full advantage (see our itinerary below) 

 

In preparation for hours in the car we are fully prepared with kids activities (age 4 1/2 and 7) and fun travel games.  I wanted to make something special and personalized for the kids and this is what I came up with.

Personalized dry erase DIY:

Materials:
Photo image (of kids)
Paper (to draw simple background scene)
Access to laminating envelope and machine
Dry erase markers
The Process:

1. Take a photo of your kiddos (print or have printed).

2. Cut out image as close to edge as possible

3.  Draw a background scene (the simpler the better for the littles to use their imaginations)

4. Lay image cutout on top of background scene

5.  Bring to your local office store and have laminated

6.  Ta da!  Your kiddos have their very own, personalized dry erase travel pages.

 

Wish us luck!  Stay tuned for images and highlights from our trip along the way.  You can get some real time pics. if you follow @windwillowhome on Instagram.
