Alissa recently flew from Sydney to New York with her 3 children. She took along a pack of Usborne Activity Cards -- 50 things to do on a journey to help entertain the little ones. We took the Usborne Activity cards on our recent trip to America. There are several variations of these cards but we took the 50 things to do on a journey pack. This is an invaluable resource to any parent with children aged from around 5 irrespective of whether you are embarking on a journey or not. The collection consists mainly of ideas for guessing, drawing and finding / spotting games and paper folding challenges. We recently took a 22 hour plane trip with 3 children aged 5, 3 and 4 months and used ideas from a number of the cards. It is particularly useful when electronic devices were not available. Each game / thing to do is listed on an individual card. Each card is presently beautifully in a way that appeals to young children. Instructions are easy to understand. Some of the ‘things’ require resources such as paper and pencil but that’s about it. A square piece of paper is required for some of the card folding ideas - my husband enjoyed these ones. The cards are ideally suited for children from 5 as being able to read and draw are required for many of the cards. Having said that we did manage to adjust some of the games to suit the 3 year old. It may be useful to look over the cards before you embark on the journey and only take those that are appropriate for your children - this may assist to avoid disappointment when you read a card and realise that it may not work for your kids. Also, keeping 50 cards together on a plane does require some coordination. We are still using the cards and I can envisage many years of journey ideas ahead.
