Our friends have recently jetted off to New Zealand, they have gone with their two boys for an amazing adventure for a couple of years to live, work and explore the country. To start their adventure off they obviously had a mammoth journey to complete. This done with two young boys could have proved to be an interesting challenge!
We wanted to make something for them that may help a little with the long journey, even if it only provided an hour or so of entertainment! I decided to make draw string bags with their names on and fill it with a few treats to keep them occupied. We included a magazine, some chocolate and sweets and a little toy. The magazines had puzzles, games, pictures and colouring pencils in which we hoped would keep both the adults and the kids happy for some time on the plane!
The bags were made from dark grey textured material cut into rectangles, then sewn together using black cotton thread. Ribbon was threaded through the bag and sewn into place to allow the boys to wear them on their backs. They were decorated with felt pieces.
