I’m sure this has never happened to any other mother, ever. But, let’s just say you’re driving in the van and your toddler/pre-k kid completely flips his lid because you did something horrific, like change the radio station. I know. Completely hypothetical. My kids are angels everywhere I go, too.
Now that the bigs are all in school, sometimes Master Luke gets a bit lonely in the back seat, in the playroom and random places in between. Evidently my riveting conversation skills aren’t always enough to keep him entertained, engaged and happy. Enter, this beauty.
A few weeks ago Molly sent me her very slick and easy-to-use Trip Clip so we could give it a whirl. Luke recently began working on his fine motor skills in occupational therapy once a week and this has proven to be a fantastic tool. But, even if you don’t have a kid with fine motor issues like we do, I think you’ll love this thing.
1. Everything is online. Molly has a slick system where you sign in and get access to all sorts of things: lists, games, puzzles and creative activities. We’ve focused on the latter three with Luke (the “bigs” are too big for this). But, it’s been great for the 4yo.
2. You can just purchase access to the printables or you can get both the printable and the clip with attached pen. Admittedly, the pen hasn’t been used yet. It’s just too big for Luke since we’re focusing on the correct way to hold a writing instrument. He does love scribbling with the four different colors it has, but we don’t do that often.
3. The print queue is genius. You just select the activities you want to print and it automatically sizes two to fit, side-by-side, on an 8.5×11 page. You can keep the same queue or delete and add to it as your child’s skill and interest level changes.
4. If you have a destroyer in the house, Molly offers one free trip clip replacement. I do like that. Fortunately, I haven’t given it to John Paul yet, so it’s still intact.
5. It’s affordable. Depending upon your budget, you can make her system work for your finances. I like that she has choices and options.
6. Lots ‘o choices. As a self-proclaimed organized momma, I appreciated that Molly had lots of choices for many different settings (grocery store, playtime, car time and you-need-to-find-something-quiet-to-do time).
Molly, thanks again!
