Sometimes, just the thought of traveling with kids can be overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be! Take a look at these travel along items that could be your saving grace.
Keeping kids safe while traveling is always a priority. One way we can do that is by providing kids with a car seat. Since car seats are so big and bulky, this can make traveling difficult. Thanks to the mifold booster seat, we can keep kids safe without the hassle of lugging around a heavy car seat. This seat fits kids over the age of 4. It folds up into a handheld-sized rectangle that makes it easy to fit inside of a bag, purse, and even some back pockets! There are no clunky buckles to secure, just expand, sit, click, and go.
This box is full of activities to keep kids busy. Although the activities are educational, your kiddo will never know it because they are a ton of fun. The set includes people counters (they even have cat and baby counters to complete the family!), scooper, bingo, large dice, lace-up shapes, lace-up letters, and an activity book that is full of games to play. The best part is that it comes with a sturdy box to keep all of the pieces. There’s a rope handle at the top of the box that makes it super easy to carry.
These adorable toy turtles have a purpose… to teach kids about colors, shapes, and numbers. There are two colors of each. One is larger, and the other baby turtle fits inside of the larger turtle’s shell. Each big turtle has a number of shapes, and the smaller turtle has the number of shapes displayed on the big turtle written on its shell. And thanks to the container with the twist on lid, these colorful turtles can come in handy while traveling. A great way to keep kids busy while traveling.
Snacks come in very handy when traveling with kids. Keep them full and satisfied with nutritious snacks by using this clever Snack in the Box. With two compartments, you can pack a selection that your kiddos will devour. I like this snack box because it helps avoid all the prepackaged food and gives parents a way to keep kids eating healthy while traveling. Having a happy tummy makes for a happy traveler.
Making sure baby is comfortable while traveling is so important. Use this to help you take care of the baby when he gets fussy. All you need to do is twist the knob to pick the volume and the Baby Shusher gives off a shushing sound. This sound comforts baby and puts him to sleep. It works like magic and can help comfort baby while traveling, or any other time baby gets upset.
This case full of foam is perfect to use on the go! It comes in a variety of colors along with compartments to keep the foam in its place. On the inside of the lid, there are different shapes that can be used to press the foam into squares, rectangles, circles, and more. Keep the kiddos entertained with this artistic traveling companion while keeping the mess contained.
When you reach your destination, have a little fun by playing a game of The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel. The goal of the game is to fill up your tree stump with all of the colors of the acorns. Use Snacky Squirrel to pick up the acorns and place them on the trunk. This is a great way to practice fine motor skills, taking turns, and recognizing colors. It’s also a lot of fun to play.
By having a few items on hand, we can avoid catastrophes while traveling with kids. All of these ideas will keep your kiddos busy and engaged.
