Jen of Mama Papa Bubba turned a binder and a set of pencil pouches into a sweet portable activity kit for little travelers. Click through to her post for the full how-to.

Her homemade toys would take a fair amount of time to make yourself, but you can easily use this idea as a jumping off point for simpler readymade kits. How about stickers + a few art supplies + index cards? Or a small toy collection?
