We are heading into the busiest travel week of the year!!! Luckily we are staying put at home this year but I know many of you will be on the road or in the air so I’ve rounded up ALL of our best travel content from over the years and put it all in one place for you!
TRAVEL BY CAR
If you’re heading out on a road trip here are my very best pieces of advice. Don’t feel guilty about using screens. Pack a bunch of snacks, and then pack a backup bag of even MORE snacks. New toys & activities given every our are GOLDEN! Plan breaks where there is an area for your kids to RUN (rest area or indoor play space ).
You’ll most definietly want to use my life-saving snack box (just pack a smaller box if traveling by plane)!
And 20 activities to try with your kids before you give into the screen.
And a note about screens – we try to do activities before screens and use them as a back up for when things get cranky. These are the headphones Piper loves and her iPad case (that also has a stand on the back).
Here are 20 activities 1 year olds (tricky age) can do in the plane or car!
My best tip for handing out activities in the car is to be strategic and don’t forget to pack enough new stuff for your return trip. Bring a handful of paper lunch bags and pass back your activities, treats, surprises in them. KIDS LOVE THIS. I try to limit it to a new one every 30 mins – an hour for long trips!
And my personal tips for flying with an infant (best age to fly with)!!!
Once you have wild toddlers to wrangle – here are tips for managing them at the airport and not losing your mind!
