Traveling With Kids – Chip Clip Card Holder

My kids have loooooved playing card games since their first round of go fish!  We often enjoy card games on rainy days, game nights, and even on card trips.  When they were very young I noticed that they had a hard time viewing all of their cards at once without dropping them as they sorted through their stack, trying to figure out which card to play.  A stop at the dollar store was all we needed to to turn card games with toddlers into an easy and even “on the go” activity.  Using a large chip clip they can hold all of their cards so that they see them, but their competitors...

I was determined to cover my garden fence in climbing flowers, and glory glory…Morning glories were my answer.  I was able to grow the most beautiful morning glories, and they cover...
