Who even likes running errands? Certainly not me! It isn't so bad alone but when I have Maddie in tow things tend to take much longer and end up being a bit stressful.
I have been brainstorming ways to make the trips fun for Mad and think I now have a winner! I turned a 77 cents mini notebook into a passport for around town! I covered the mini notebook in some cute scrapbook paper, printed out a little travel sticker for the front and added a vital info sticker in the front cover. So for less than a $1 Maddie has her own personal mission on every trip out of the house.
We put the passport to work today while we ran errands this morning. When it was time for me to check out a store Maddie politely asked for a stamp in her passport. I quickly explained that a sticker, stamp or even a quick little drawing like a smiley face would be just fine. All we are looking for is some sort of mark that Maddie has been to that destination.
Everyone that Maddie passed her passport to today thought it was such a great idea and Maddie LOVED it!Since it was such a big hit I made an extra to send to whomever will be Maddie's Super Summer Swap buddy!
