Would you like to see my project based on the Circles, Spots, Dots, and Blots theme? Well, here you go:

I also chose to make some fun little items to include in the travel tote to help pass the time. Here are the photos:

This game was created using a plastic packing case, the Doo-hickey heart die, paper, alphas, and ball bearings. The object of the game is to get each of the four balls into the four holes which were punched into the heart.

I also created a little dot-to-dot book in which the child would follow the numbers by drawing connecting lines which will create an image when completed. I used various die shapes for each page.

I cropped the above photo a bit too much! Sorry about that. It is a box that is holding crayons.

I realize there are a lot of photos. I thought they were pretty self-explanatory. If you have any questions, just ask! Also, I would love if you left a comment sharing your thoughts. This was a challenge for me to do! LOL I really wanted to go with the literal title of the Hop.

Now, you are off to visit the aways lovely project created by

Have fun visiting the DT blogs! Thank you for hopping by today!

I hope you will return again very soon!

OMGoodness, Chris. When I first saw this I kept thinking..."Did Magnolia release a lunch box?" LOL Wow, what a creative perspective you put on a simple tote box. I love the travel theme and would definitely use this on family road trips. Reminds me of a travel back in time to some of the most fun days of my life. Let's share with our grandchildren. LOL Fabulous creativity, Hun.
