Making travel and outings fun for kids. Stocking a variety of essentials to keep your kids occupied on the go.

Uhambo means Journey in Zulu. I am grew up overseas and we travelled extensively as a family. This developed my love of travel which I have passed on to my own children. Early on in our travels I realized that my children really loved having their own carryon/overnight bags to be "just like mom and dad". It was before one of our trips I started to develop our own family Uhambo bags. These are small roller backpacks that I fill with activities, snacks and an extra set of clothes for my children. Our family keeps these bags separate from our daily life that allows the bags to be even more exciting when we travel. Then I started to think about how whenever we were headed out on a car ride, to a restaurant or a day trip I would throw similar things into my purse or a small bag. This got me thinking that a small pouch containing the "essentials" would keep my kids occupied, and all the activities together making it easy for me to grab on the go. My philosophy with the Uhambo Packs and Pouches is reusable but disposable. We wanted to make a product that made travel a little less stressful for parents and fun for kids. These packs and pouches can be used on a short afternoon trip, in a restaurant or on an international adventure. The Uhambo Packs are a grab bag of activities with some practical things thrown in to make life a little easier for mom and dad. You will find a combination of : games, crayons, coloring books, paint with water books, story book, a small collapsable water bottle, a pack of wipes, a travel buddy that doubles as a pillow and a roller backpack to carry it all in. The Uhambo Pouch contains the same activities, collapsible water bottle, and wipes. All contained in a convenient zipper pouch that can be stowed in you car, purse or another bag.

Mission: To make travel fun for kids. Our products are reusable yet disposable.

[05/08/20]   Amazing Friends We need your help!!! The last week I have been helping South Africans who have been stranded in the USA due to the borders being closed. There is a repatriation flight tomorrow out of IAD, Many of these people are AuPairs and students with limited funds and have had to travel to our area to catch this last flight. If any of you are able to help by donating so that they can have a few things to make their flight a little more comfortable:
Masks
Small hand sanitize (travel size)
Paper towels ( the last flight ran out in the bathrooms)
Gloves

We may not be traveling or even exploring our area right now but we are [email protected] engaged and trying new things... cooking, learning and enjoying our family time! #sealpupsonthego #homeschool #kidscooking #familytime

During this crazy time we all need a way to keep moving! Check our Jen who is an amazing coach, and health coach! She is offering great options to keep fit at home!

Here ya go!!!!

SimplyFIT @ Home will start next week!
Format is...flexible & you can make requests!

I have taught for 15 years and can teach just about anything, but most requested format is "Jen-Style" Pilates, or as some of you are familiar - HardCore!

Exercise is not only a wonderful form of stress relief, but this format helps to erase the physical aches, pains and stiffness caused by that stress in addition to the ergonomics of our work-from-home environment. And for some, the home work outs we've been doing have been causing strain on our joints and overuse injuries. Incorporating a couple of these Pilates-based classes into your week will keep you healthy and injury free!

My plan is to offer alternating formats each week between "HardCore" and "Restore" - which is a less ...well, hard core variation!

EACH class will be $10 and ~40-45 min long and finish with a quick take-away tip on health/nutrition/wellness - then open for a few minutes of Q&A for you all to pick my brain!

At this point I plan to record each class and email the link to people that attended, or that paid and weren't able to attend "LIVE."

Comment here - message me or send me an email @ [email protected] with any questions.

STAY TUNED for info on schedule, format and registration process.

Sealpups made us some yummy dessert tonight!!! Adventures don’t have to be going places they can be cooking, painting, doing a puzzle!!! #sealpupsonthego #homemadefood #kidsmakedesserts #familyadventures

We may be in a new “normal” being stuck at home but that doesn’t mean our creativity and magic have to disappear from our lives. One of the Sealpups loves boxes and it doesn’t matter what size he is always creating things with it ! #sealpupsonthego #kidsofinstagram #kidcreativity #coronakids #athomeadventures

Does your Easter Bunny need a little help this week? We have some fun filled pouches !! Local to Loudoun County VA we can help !! www.sealpup-gear.myshopify.com

Social distancing may be our current normal but that didn’t stop us from finding a remote spot to enjoy nature and get fresh air away from everyone as well as enjoy spring. Thankful to be near such beautiful places that allow us to still get the exercise we need and enjoy nature! #sealpupsonthego #virginianature #kidadventures #springiscoming #socialdistancing

Need some last minute things to fill your Easter basket? We have great ideas !!! https://sealpup-gear.myshopify.com #sealpupsonthego #ashburnva #smallbusinesses #kidactivities #easterbasketideas

Remember that even with all the stress and changing information bombarding us during this uncharted time we can still find magic for our children. Just because they are home doesn’t mean we can’t show them new adventures! What are you doing to keep your kids positive, engaged and not in front of the tv 24/7? #adventureiseverywhere #sealpupsonthego #kidsofinstagram #familyadventures #kidactivities #familytime

Taking more time to explore our neighboring areas... today we enjoyed a quick stop at Leesburg Animal Park #sealpupsonthego #familytime #kidadventures

Packing can be very stressful but it doesn’t need to be! Here are a few tips: how many days are you going for? If it is a week or under pack 1 extra outfit and no need for an extra pjs ... are you staying in a hotel? Use the hotel toiletries and save the space in your bag.... snacks are always worth taking along, and a reusable water bottle is great to add to your carryon... less is more you can almost always get something you left easily! What tips do you have ? #sealpupsonthego

Sometimes you just have to go on a spur of the moment adventure... the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum was the perfect spot this past weekend! The black and white pics were taken by the Sealpups! It is fun seeing their perspective.

Sometimes you find a unique and fun hotel on your travels... the Sealpups love this gem in Johannesburg, the Airport Game Lodge has spacious rooms, friendly staff and even a friendly pup to hang out with. Which fun places have you stayed at?
