Despite having a variety of rucksacks etc when grabbing some toys for going out Sam will usually grab one of my fabric shopping bags from my handbag:
I think it's because he doesn't have to deal with zips and things that way. But as you can see my bags are pink (this is me after all!!!) So not ideal for a 4 year old boy. So instead I made him this:
I added 2 short handles for carrying and also a long shoulder strap for carrying cross body on Sam or on shoulder for me. Then it is just some simple velcro at the top to stop things easily falling out if it gets tipped over in the car.
He's over the moon with it and it's been everywhere with him for the last day! a perfect remedy for cheering him up too seen as he seems to have caught my virus - look at the rash on his face and arms bless him!
