TRAVEL GAMES: These games won't take up much room in the suitcase or backpack. Pick from Disney Bingo, $2.99, Clay Art By Number, $2.99, and all kinds of UNO games for $6.99, from superheroes to the Family Guy. All at Old Time Pottery in Fairview Heights.

WATERPROOF POUCH: At the beach, on a boat or by the pool, protect your expensive phone with this waterproof case for $9.99 at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
