An Easy Solution to the nagging kid question "Where are we going NOW?"

I came up with this today. I'm pretty happy with the easy design. I could have done this on the color printer, but my daughter is only 3 1/2 and still tends to destroy things on occassion. So I'd rather be able to just reprint pages if need be, then to worry about how much color ink I'm using. So here's the scoop. Every time we get in the car to go somewhere, I hear "Where are we going NOW mommy?" about a million times. And once we finish at one destination, it's "where are we going next?" and "and then where?" so I came up with this easy idea that will save me from answering the questions over and over again. You will need: A 3-ring binder, any size rings Sheet protectors Printed pages representing places you go regularly The cover of my book:
Then the pages look like these:
Just google the places you go, and copy the pictures from the websites. I even found pictures of my kids' real doctors! Then google your address. I easily found a picture of our house from when it was last sold on the market. Of course you need a page that says it's time to go home! Now once you get the pages inside the sheet protectors, you can easily create an instant travel plan for your child in a matter of seconds before you load up into the car. They will always know where you're going next!
