This is a project I made almost 3 years ago for J that I just happened to rediscover when packing the car bag for our recent 5 hour drive home. J absolutely loved this project and since rediscovering it has started playing with it again. I need to update the photos a bit, but she didn’t seem to mind. Although she wouldn’t believe me that there was a picture of her in the bag–she kept insisting that it was C!
I’d highly recommend making this if you have kids between the ages of 2 and 5. It is ridiculously easy and not at all time consuming. And your kids will get hours of use from it!
So I started with the bus. I printed off a picture of a bus I found online, glued it onto a leftover box from Amazon and cut it out. Then I hot glued strips of velcro in each window and one on the bottom for the driver. I think I used the soft side, although I don’t know why it would matter.
Next I went through my giant collection of photographs and picked out one picture of each family member and close friend. I cut the faces out and then laminated them (I own this laminator and absolutely adore it). I hot glued small squares of the opposite side of the velcro onto the back of each photograph. That’s it!
Like I said, I made this almost 3 years ago and it was played with–a lot. And as you can see it’s still in relatively good shape! There are quite a few family members who are missing so before C gets old enough to use it I’ll need to do a little updating. Love it!!
