50+ Travel Toys in an Altoid Tin


Now that it's the New Year, I've started thinking about SUMMER!  In fact, I've already started planning our next themed road trip (which I'll be revealing soon).  About this time of year, I start up my Travel Time Tuesday posts, and today is the first one!

In this digital age, it's easy to hand your child a device and pacify them with movies and games the entire trip.  But, as we all know, you miss so much when you're living life through a screen.  Wouldn't it be nice if our road trips could be simpler, even a bit old fashioned?

Altoids may be associated with grandfathers, but the tins they come in are a great size for pocket toys.  If you don't have anyone in your life that eats altoids, you can buy crafting tins on Amazon.  If you have family members (like I do that can't get enough of the mints), then you might want to try making your own candies with this recipe.

Once you've collected your tins, you're ready to craft.  After the jump, you'll find 50 travel toys contained in a tiny tin.

I am very interested in this game.  It looks a bit like Carcassone.  One thing that I love about it as a travel game is how it can be played with 1 or 2 players.  It looks like it might need a bit of space to lay it out, so it might be better on an airplane or at your destination.  If you added magnets to the back of the tiles, you could play on a cookie sheet.

Print the game and rules on the official site or craft your own like the one in the picture.

As a miniature enthusiast, I'm in awe of all the tiny accessories packed into this tin.  If you have a child who loves to play cook, this might be the perfect tin for him or her.

I wouldn't hand this tin to a child, and even adults should proceed with caution.  I wanted to include it because it struck me as so crazy.  If you can't get through the day without feeling sand, this is the tin for you.

Sewing kits are a good idea to bring when you travel to deal with minor repairs.  If you enjoy hand sewing as a pastime, this perfectly outfitted tin would be great for holding all your supplies.

One of my favorite things about this tin is the baseball cover on the outside.

It's magnetic so you can play anywhere!

I have a set of magnetic tangrams ready for our vacation and was attracted to this puzzle set because of the similarities.  If you have the crafting ability, it would be helpful to make the pieces 3D to make them easier to pick up.  Magnets on the back keep them from falling on the floor.  The puzzles could be bound with a machine to keep them together as well.

Pieces can be printed on the Worksheet Works website
