Simplify Your Life- Traveling with Young Kids

30 10 2012

During a recent trip to the coast I put together a “Survival Guide” for parents traveling with young children.  I gathered all of the “tools” to create the perfect busy, interactive, learning kit to ensure your travels are whine free.  This concoction does not include any electronics or toys that need batteries; bringing young kids back to the basics of car travel and quality family time.

Kit has been tested and approved by a four and five year old!

For Busy Minds:

Interactive Fun:

  • Worksheets / Dry Erase Marker (Print out, laminate & reuse)
  1. My Personalized “I Spy” Worksheet
  2. Shapes Worksheet
  3. Alphabet Worksheet
  4. Letters Worksheet

Keeping Their Bodies Fueled:

Sleepy Heads:

  • Pillow
  • Special Lovie or Blanket

Clean Up / Safety:

  • Baby Wipes or Hand Cleaning Wipes (for all the sticky messes)
  • Bag for Trash or Sick Child
  • First Aid Kit

Tip: Keep the “Survival Kit” away from the kids and only get one item out at a time.  This way you have new and exciting stuff to bring out and challenge their minds the entire length of the trip. Happy Traveling!
