Homeschool Travel Kit, First Grade

If you are taking any sort of trip this summer, then you’re probably looking for a way to keep the kids occupied while traveling to and from, and during their downtime while there. If whatever activities you found also happened to prevent summer slide, then all the better!
We recently went on a camping trip and put together two homeschool travel kits, one for our SunnyGirl (age 2) and one for LittleMan (age 5).
Besides the file folder games and the sight word ball, pretty much everything inside of the travel kit was purchased from Dollar Tree. All the file folder games we used were found as free printables online (links below).
