Holiday Travel with Young Kids

Creative Ways to Entertain Your Toddlers While Traveling During the Holidays 

You've packed snacks, toys, and electronics, but sometimes you need to be a little creative to keep your littlest travelers entertained in the car. So before you hit the road, here are a few items to be sure to stock up on to your toddlers will be happy the entire trip.

  • Gel Clings- Before you hit the road, grab a few packs of gel clings-you can find them at the dollar store- and when your little one starts to get bored, let them peel the clings off the paper and place them on the window. They can move the clings over and over again, and when they are done playing, you can simply toss them in the trash. This activity will keep your kids happy travelers.
  • Pipe Cleaners- A pack of pipe cleaners are inexpensive and can be turned into all sorts of fun shapes and designs-which is perfect for tiny travelers. You can even give your child a small bag of cereal and let them string the cereal onto the pipe cleaner for a fun activity and yummy snack.
  • Suction Cup Caddies- Just like you don't want to keep turning around to grab that sippy cup, you don't want to keep searching for crayons while driving. Head to the dollar store and grab a few small, plastic caddies with suction cups. These are usually meant to be used in the bathroom, but you can attach them to your car widows and load them up with crayons, markers, and stickers. Anytime your child feel creative, they can simply grab what then want from the caddie on the window and hopefully put it back.
  • Reusable Water Pens and Books- These books are perfect to traveling toddlers. Just fill the pen with water and your toddler can "color" on the special book. When it dries, they can start all over again. 
  • Sticker Books- A road trip is the perfect time to pack all of the random stickers you can find in your home. Kids will love covering coloring pages with the stickers. You can keep your stash of stickers in a small bag and hand the sticker pages to your kids.
