Travel Activities for Kids
Summer travel is in full swing, and we are off on our first road trip this weekend. I love a mix of both new activities and tried and true favorites to keep my crew occupied during those long car rides or flights. I try to hold off on screen time as long as possible, so here are some fun ideas to keep your little ones busy in the car, on the plane and on your vacation.
+ For Little Ones: I love these suction cup spinner toys and window clings. The shape sorting dinosaur sensory toys are always a hit too.
+ Toddlers: My kids loved the Tape activity book and many games of I-Spy!
+ Mad Libs: Mad Libs comes in the Junior & Regular version, so depending on if you have a 5th grader or a 1st Grader, there is a game to create the silliest of stories for all ages. It's a fun way to encourage creativity and language skills.
+ LCD Writing Tablets: If you are looking for something a little different, reusable drawing boards are a longtime favorite. These come with templates for tracing and drawing that are inserted into the writing tablets!
+ Activity Books: We love Paint by Sticker books and any book that helps us learn about where we are headed! The 50 States Activity Book is a favorite.
+ Question Cards: We love conversation starters! Playing cards that ask thought-provoking or wild and hilarious questions. These are perfect for the car or the dinner table.
+ Podcasts or Audio Books: Download a few stories or educational content to help pass the time
+ Snacks: We can never have enough!!
+ Electronic Entertainment: Once I have tried everything else to keep beat the road-trip bordem, I whip out a tablet loaded with favorite tv shows and movies.
Safe & happy travels this summer! ☀️
