When you’re traveling with kids, keeping them entertained is critical, especially on long flights, waiting at the airport, standing in long lines, or when having a long car ride. It can make the difference between a great trip and a miserable one.
Entertainment doesn’t necessarily mean a smartphone, although a smartphone is a great option when traveling. Depending on their age, here are some great options to consider:

  • Electronics – a phone, music player, tablet are great ways to pass the time.
  • Journal – let them draw or write a travel journal. It’s a great way to enrich the trip and an amazing souvenir.
  • Card and board games – you can buy the games you know and love in traveling versions (small, magnetic, special packaging).
  • Road Trip Games – check out our guide of road trip games you can play when driving or have free time.
  • Dolls they love

Final Thoughts

  • Make sure to have chargers, headphones, spare/backup batteries, adaptors.
  • If you take electronics, don’t count on WIFI or mobile plans. Make sure to download the apps, music, movies, or TV shows to the device before your trip. You never know when you’ll be without Wi-Fi, and it’s almost guaranteed your kids will desperately need a new app or episode when that happens.
