DIY Travelling Kit

Max is leaving for a 2 weeks business transfer to China. He has something like a 18 hours travel, among train, air plane and stopover and I thought to do something for him to make everything a bit less boring. This is how my idea of a travelling kit born :)

As first step you need to gather the stuff you'll put inside. I thought about what'd entertain me in long waiting and added some of his favourite things :) Of course I had to keep in mind that he was going to travel by air plane: weight and dimension had to be limited.

So we have a Sudoku book, pencils and rubber, a stress-free ball, a candy box and some packages of rice crackers.
I cut some pages from the Sudoku book and tied them together with some ribbon. Then I fixed the rubber to the ribbon with some tape and added the pencil.


Next I made some tag to go with the various "presents". Every tag has an action related to the item ("squeeze me" on the ball, "eat me" on the bag of food and err.. "do me" on the game XD )


To complete the foodie bag I cooked some pancakes.. mini sized <3

Almost done! I took a nice card and wrote a message to explain what the hell was it XD and to wish him a nice trip.


At last I put everything in a paper bag and closed it with some tape (maybe chose one that's more manly than the one I found xD ):


I gave it to him at the station and ordered to open it when he was on the train xD Hopefully it'll put a smile on his face and make his trip a tiny bit more pleasant :)
Good luck!
