Toddler Travel Favorites

We’ve been up and down and back again all summer long. We’ve spent weeks at beaches in New Jersey, Delaware and have been all over the place this season. It’s been a blast, but I have to say I’M DONE. I’m all travelled out and I’m excited to just stay put for a little bit this Fall – and for the weather to cool down a bit please!

That being said, I think I’ve become a bit of an expert in terms of what to bring in the car to entertain a toddler. Brooks is 2.5 years old and pretty good when it comes to traveling in the car. We don’t use the car too much during the week when we are at home in the city, so the car is a bit of a treat for him, which I love. He always asks to go for a “car ride” – so cute!

The only issue is when we get in the car and I’m trying to have Graham take a nap and Brooks wants to talk and sing and do all things loud and noisy. So I’ve been picking up a few things here and there to keep him entertained {and quiet} in the car – check out my favorites and feel free to share yours!

Toddler Travel Favorites

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine

one – Obsessed with these Water Wow Books. You just need a little water for the built in brush, or you can use any brush. The little paints the page and all the colors appear. Best part about it – it drys shortly and the little can do it all over again! Love this, comes in a bunch of varieties!

two – I always have our Kindle Fire with me and changed. I don’t usually give it to Brooks unless Graham is sleeping and I need him to be quiet, but it’s a lifesaver when you really need it. Plus I love it comes loaded with all these games you don’t need wifi for. Amazing.

three – These headphones are necessary with the Fire. They are inexpensive and go perfectly with the tablet case. Again, when you need silence. Ha.

four – How cute is this backpack? I love it’s size and the cute patterns. Great to pack up all things toddler in one little space to keep everything sort of together.

five – What goes with road trip? ALL. THE. SNACKS. Again, another cute find with this amazing lunchbox – keeping everything together is half the battle!

six – Do yourself a favor and DON’T BUY this CD. Ok, buy it – your kids will love it. But you will HATE IT. It’s pretty annoying but seriously, the kids LOVE IT. And anything is better than screaming!

seven – This is a fun little game that Brooks enjoys, easy to play in the car, all the parts are contained and goes along with the whole steering a car thing. Easy peasy!

eight – ok, this is a fun toy but depending on your childs age, might not be the best in the car because #allthepieces BUT it’s still a really cute travel toy to bring along on the go. Easy to create and have a little fun with and great to store in the box!

nine – Just like the Water Wow books, the Color Blast is awesome because you use one marker and all the colors come out in the pages! I see ones like these in the Target Dollar Spot and I stock up. So amazing for the car – love these!
