A travel journal pin board idea for kids for your next vacation


Before our recent family trip to Austin, I was trying to come up with ways to help my 3.5 year old remember our vacation. That's when I thought of collecting business cards and pictures of all the places we visited and turning it into an activity using a board and some velcro.


My son really likes to rearrange the cards and talk about what we did at those places. I was thinking of also printing pictures that we took at the places and then Greyson could make a matching game out of the board.  


We laminated the stuff since we happen to have a laminator, but you don't have to laminate to have the same effect. 

I like that we made an activity out of stuff we just collected during our trip. It took very little effort to make this project, which is my kind of project. 

Happy Trails!

  1. What a clever use for a pin board. My daughter writes in a journal for a similar purpose. With the pin board, she can make her travel journal come alive more fully. How much do they retail for?

  4. When we prefer to travel with our people & family, we have a tendency to most popular to rent car for rentals at reasonable worth, in order that rental a car could be a necessary factor in our life travel, thanks for posting this valuable data. Hummer Hire Melbourne | Limo Hire Melbourne
