Dry Packing with Kids

The last time we dry packed at home, the kids wanted to help a lot. That was fine, except we had sugar everywhere (that's the point at which the kids got banished from the kitchen!) I got smarter this time and planned some kid-friendly tasks!

Putting the can inside a wheat-filled bowl allowed Abby to scoop the wheat into the can without getting wheat everywhere. She was happy, and I was happy.

Abby's job was to put the labels on all the cans.

Abby was a very good box organizer. She'd line empty boxes up for her dad and hold down the flaps for me while I taped up the boxes. She really did help a lot that day and she made the job go by faster.
