Most consumers who are considering various travel trailers for sale aren’t thinking about crafting with kids while on the road. Those who have experience with the versatility of the RV know better. When consumers are window-shopping for travel trailers for sale, they should keep in mind that the set up of the RV caters to minor alterations. Before deciding upon which of the travel trailers for sale will suit the family’s needs most aptly, consider which of the family’s activities will need to be incorporated into the design of the recreational vehicle.
Prospective RV owners and veteran RVers who still aren’t sure of the RV’s extreme versatility, should consider the fact that incorporating your favorite at home activities can only improve on the overall experience of RVing. A family that simply adores movies could consider installing a larger screen TV and transferring all their DVDs to a digital storage device to save space in the vehicle. A family that adores board games will want to be sure to leave space for a stack of their favorite games for use on the road, etc. Many question the propensity RVing holds for crafting with kids and for those who simply don’t think it’s feasible, consider the following easy crafting activities for kids.
Crafting with Kids in the RV:
- Making Bouncy Balls: Many aren’t aware of quite how simple this process is. The only ingredients needed to make bouncy balls are borax, cornstarch and glue. For full instructions, type it in to your favorite search engine and scroll through the results.
- Borax Snowflakes: This classic allows kids to create their own crystallized snowflakes. Do it after dinner and in the morning they’ll wake up to a finished product.
- Making Fondant: Most kids love sweet treats. Make the creation of the dessert just as fun as the eating of the dessert by finding a simple marshmallow fondant recipe online and giving them permission to make a mess in the RV kitchen as they create the after dinner cake.
- Jewelry Making: All kids love making beaded bracelets, necklaces, etc. There’s no reason why this particular activity can’t be packaged to take on the road. The tools and supplies are all small, making them easy to carry and load in the RV.
- Crocheting and Knitting: If you haven’t yet learned, consider the wide array of video tutorials and how-to articles online. Learn something new with your kids the next time they’d like to get crafty.
- Tin Can Stilts: Tin can stilts when looked at as an adult are more aptly described as “walking on tin cans,” but they provide endless entertainment for kids looking for a project. The only items needed for the project are: tin cans, small rope or very strong string, and something to punch a hole in the tin cans so the string/rope can be threaded through. This provides the kids with something to hold onto as they march around with tin cans under their feet.
The list could go on and on. All of the above crafting projects are completely adaptable to the RV. Never limit the possibilities when considering travel trailers for sale. Assuming it can’t be done in an RV is usually a mistake. Crafting, gaming, sewing, reading, and more can all be just as enjoyable by RV as the many outdoor recreational activities that RVing is known for.
