I don't want to say that I am a germaphobe,
but after I watched a special on Oprah a few months ago
about how germy airplane tray tables are,
I am super cautious when I am flying.
Traveling with a three year old makes matters worse
(especially when that three year old is very handsy).
I brainstormed for a couple of days about
what I could do to minimize the germ interaction
when I fly with my daughter.
Of course I have sani-wipes in my purse,
but I wanted something that would slide over
the tray and that she could eat on. I also wanted something
that would keep all of the "activities" that we bring on the plane together.
So this is what was born....
The top is vinyl so it can be cleaned. Also, games like tic-tac-toe can be slid under the vinyl and grease pencils can write on the vinyl (you can use the same game sheet over and over then!). There are three pouches on the front for pens and colors and snacks. The underside of the cover is another pouch that holds paper and coloring books. I also added a strap so that my daughter can carry it on her own. The cover in the pictures is now the 3rd one that I have made...one for my daughter and two for some friends of ours. All three are a bit different...but I love them.
