Traveling with Kids
With summer approaching, family trips are on the horizon. Here are some of our favorite tips and tricks for travelling with little ones. (Downloadable cheat sheet above!)
Pack an inexpensive or disposable camera. Your little ones will love the chance to get behind the lens!
Let’s Get App-y!
Don’t worry about carting around a trunk full of toys. Before your trip, upload a few new apps to keep them occupied in the car or in the plane.
Armed with a fun pen and a notebook, your junior travelers will spend your trip documenting it.
The pressure changes on planes can be a source of extreme discomfort for little ones. To help ease their pain, pack some sugar-free chewing gum or try Earplane ear plugs for kids. And be sure to pack some snacks and keep the activities coming!
With just a pen a piece of paper you can enjoy:
THE DOT GAME: Draw several rows of evenly spaced dots on a sheet of paper. Players take turns, adding a single horizontal or vertical line between two unjoined adjacent dots. Once a player completes the fourth side of a 1×1 box (closes the box), he or she “wins” that box and can write his or her initials in the box. That player earns one point and takes another turn. The game ends when no more lines can be drawn. The player with the most points wins.
Not equipped with props? You can still play:
ALPHATHINGS: List out each letter of the alphabet and try to find something that begins with each letter.
COLOR SPY: Like Alphathings, list out all of the colors of the rainbow and attempt to find something of each color.
TWO TRUTHS AND ONE MAKE BELIEVE: This game requires two players. The first player lists three things about themselves, two of them being truths and one of them being something made up. The other player attempts to guess which of the three statements is fiction.
When you’re travelling, sugar may not be your friend - so stick to the savories. Our favorites include cheese cubes, whole grain crackers and cereals, veggie chips, and pretzels.
