We're going on vacation for a week, staying at a rented house. In the past, I've let DD bring one stuffed animal and then I've brought something to keep her occupied like crayons/paper/stickers. It's worked out well because usually we're staying with family who have other toys or else we're doing so much touristy stuff, there's not really time to play with toys.
This time, we'll be there with DD (2) and her cousins (1, 3, 5). It's a rented vacation house so no toys there I'm sure. And I have a feeling we'll be spending a good bit of time in the house. I'm considering running out to the store and buying a new toy that all the kids can share. Or I might just take a few things we already have. But either way, what kinds of toys would you take with you other than crayons/paper/stickers?
