    I would love to know too actually...we're going to use the passport covers from Michaels that I bought earlier this year to create a planning/information guide to hand out at our open house next month...eeep...I hate that it's already "next month"!!!  Did you use the large postcards as the cover, clip the corners to round them and fold them in half?

I thought of doing brochures or post cards with Vistaprint but don't think we have time...need to send some overseas.

     

    Thanks!

      Thanks for that tip.  I have been slacking on my OOT bags.  I did take advantage of the Vistaprint sale!!  Magnets, Welcome/Thank you letters and return address labels.  All for free!!  I think that will help me to get back on track.

      Also, for those of you thinking of buying the tide sink packs, they are $1.79 in the travel section of Superstore, and $2.00 at Walmart.

        If anyone is looking, the moist lens cleaning cloths are back in stock at Dollarama (in Durham Region, at least...) I just found a bunch at the Oshawa centre store, and they were only $1 each.

            If anyone wants to see my brochures, send me a PM. I don't know how to black out all of her private info, so I feel weird about just posting it publicly. I wouldn't mind emailing it to you ladies, though!

             

            For those of you who want to use vista, you can still make them in Publisher and upload them to Vista. Make sure you save the front and back as two separate files, since you can only upload one file at a time on Vista. AND uploads are FREE right now.

             

            So a couple of kids are now joining us in Mexico: 11 year old girl, 9 year old boy, 8 year old girl. What do I get kids these ages!? I have NO idea. Ideas ?!

              I just sent you a PM!

               

              Well, I would look for travel/card games myself for that age range...maybe kid friendly (i.e., lipsmacker brand) sparkly cheek glosses or lip glosses for the girls (I bought mine at Dollarama).  I also bought my nieces (10 and 6) these roll-on coloured soaps for the bathtub scented like coconut and cotton candy from Avon...I bought them for .99 each and I've seen them come up at that price again since.  I thought they'd have fun with them in the tub at the resort.  There are all kinds of pool toys, water guns, etc. etc. too...I can't bring myself to buy water guns as I work in inner city schools and am always having to tell my students "no guns in school" (you'd be amazed at what they try to fashion into a gun!)...plus it would be just our luck that some innocent but nasty bystander would get hit with something one of our guests threw and complain.  I did buy some foam flying discs though.  Oh, and my nieces love getting their nails painted too...maybe some child-safe nailpolish?

                Unfortunately I don't have any photos to share as I still have not printed them! I'm still working on last minute changes.

                    How about some water guns, beach balls and/or frisbees?  Depending on the kids, you could also try some activity books with word finds, puzzles, etc.  Superstore sometimes has their card games (e.g., scrabble slam, monopoly deal, etc) on sale for like $3.00.  Do you think the kids would be interested in those?

                     

                    All the kids coming to my wedding will be under 3, so we're just sticking with good old sand toys... but 11, 9 and 8-year-olds might not be too old for sand-castle-building materials....
