Two Minute Turtle Timer Travels

two minute turtle timer takes Summer vacation

Travelling, with all the planning, packing, adjusting to being in a new climate or schedule or lack of schedule, is work!  To be a traveller means to be, at some point in the journey--thirsty, hungry and tired!  We're not in the comforts of home any more.  No wonder the English word to travel comes from the French word for pain, travails, travailler.  Children like and need routines. Even with the fun of vacation,  it disrupts family routine and some loss of control.

Maintaining healthy habits like toothbrushing on the road takes more work for families.  The Two Minute Turtle timer is a small, simple way to maintain some structure for kids and keep up their daily toothbrushing habits on the road.  The Two Minute Turtle travels well in any travel pack.  Keep up the kids' healthy habits this Summer. Take a little bit of the travail out of your travels this Summer with the Two Minute Turtle timer.  We did (without even having the children on the trip)!
