Two Toddlers and a 3.5 Hour Train Ride….

Written by Lauren on. Posted in General

Today we are heading up to spend the Easter holidays with my parents, aka Nana and Pops.  It’s just the me, the boys and a 3.5 hour train journey.  Now we have done it before a fair few times but Spike was only a baby so would sleep for most of it but he is now at an age where he keeps himself awake if there are more exciting things going on.  I have packed the usual DVD player, books, colouring things and toys to keep them occupied but usually we coincide the journey with a meal time which can easily pass an hour of time.  This time we are leaving straight after lunch.  And it’s not even like I can push them a bit because Spike knows exactly to the second when it is lunch time.

Whilst searching the shop for snacks to be my fail safe distraction technique I had a brain wave!

These pots full of crap sweeties were half price so I picked two up to start my master plan.

I discarded the innards…..

I felt generous so gave them ONE egg and ONE packet of marshmallows, then added some hula hoops and a Babybel….

Filled the OXO Tot snack pots with raisins…. (I have to mix and match the lids to stop a whole Blue/Green War erupting)

Popped them in with a car each that I took from the playroom but that they will think is new…..

Voila we are ready to go!
