Play Checkbook

One of the things I love to do when we go on vacation is
to bring fun, new things for my kids to play with.

When we went on our 3000 mile road trip a couple years ago
Chloe was 8 months old 
{were we insane?!?!}
And I brought a entire suitcase of surprises for the girls.

This trip won't have nearly as many miles in the car
but 5 hours in an airplane keeps getting longer and longer
every time we go.

Today I put together some checkbooks for the girls.

I found a download for the checks over at Just Something I Made
{I didn't sew the perforations, 
I have a perforating blade for my paper cutter}
Then I made a super simple cover using some matching material
from the girls' backpacks.
I hope this keeps them busy for a little while!


  1. Do kid's now a days even know what a check book is? Lilly would color on it and then ask for a credit card.

  2. Oh this made me want to play something immediately! My Mother once let me have a book of checks from a bank account that she closed. I remember being in HEAVEN. I guess, nowdays, it's all about the plastic. My 3 year old knows just what to do with a card. There's just something about that check though. (Plus....I love to write goofy things in the "memo" section. But that's 'cause I'm juvanille!)

  3. I love this! My sister and I would play "store" for hours when we were little. This is just adorable!

  4. Visiting from Tatertots and Jello. What a cute idea! And now I want to make that cover for my check book!

  5. how adorable!! I'm visiting from Tatertots and Jello also!
