For family involvement in your business travel, take a photo/video of your child’s favorite small stuffed animal in the places you visit. Your child will get excited about their toy’s adventures. It’s even great material for a book you can write with your child. Some schools have a ‘Flat Stanley’ doll that is pictured around the globe. This ‘Flat Stanley’ is an excellent paper doll to take photos of because it takes up no space or weight in your bag.
A friend of mine would take along her child’s stuff animal collected from McDonald’s Happy Meals. Due to the small size, the animals were easy to toss into a purse and photograph at an interesting spot.
