Packing for a Trip Kids Craft & Activity

  • Individual Pieces of Construction Paper (one per child)
  • Handles (two per child)
  • Pieces for the Wheels (two per child)
  • Packing Items Images (I used this awesome FREE printable)

  • Have the children fold the paper in half and glue the sides down

Packing for a Trip with Kids

  • Prepare the handles by folding a piece of construction paper and cutting a semi-circle. With the “scrap” I ended up with, I cut out circles for wheels. Have the children grab two handles & glue the handles onto the top of their suitcase
