Traveling Games

When we meet for family vacations like the one we’re embarking upon on Wednesday, each family group brings a game to play in case of rain or when we’re ready to slow down and relax. We play poker, board games, make up our own games, tell ghost stories, and do most anything that seems like fun.



This year I’m taking a set of dominoes which can easily be tucked into my carry-on bag. I found fabric at Jo-ann’s for the exterior and used flannel from my stash for the lining to make a simple drawstring bag to hold the dominoes.

Reminds me of wonderful family holidays from the past! Great fabric!

see you there! said...

Great bag. When my family gets together we play marathons of pinochle. We do have a stash of board games at the cabin but pinochle rules.

Perfect bag, as usual. Clarice

Great idea even for home storage! I have several small type games in boxes that take up too much room. I will have to keep a look out for fabric that will work for mine.

Hi June - what a great idea to line your bag with flannel. Don't forget cribbage!

I bought a whole bunch of themed fabric to make bags with (including dominoes!) for our games as well as other storage ideas at: http://www.4my3boyz.com/

I hope you have a fabulous vacation.

I love board games etc and the kids love it when I play with them.
The fabric suits it so well. Great job.

Fun times ahead! We used to put together huge intricate puzzles on family weeks at the beach. It was always traumatic to tear them apart when we were done.
