Traveling with kids doesn’t have to be a hassle, as long as you have something with you that will entertain them and keep them occupied. You don’t have to carry big toys which are complicated to assemble, especially during flight or on the highway. Those toys are meant to stay at home. What you need are toys made for traveling and those toys can all fit in one backpack. Allow me to show you great toys for kids you can take on a trip with you.
Scrabble to Go
Scrabble is for the entire family and older kids because in this game you are connecting letters to get some word. It sounds challenging to play scrabble during the trip because it has so many small pieces, but it is not as hard as it seems. This game is made for traveling so every letter has a place you can put it in, without losing it. If you have arrived at the destination but the game is not over you can close the entire board and the letters will stay in the same place. Pretty amazing right?
Le Toy Van Petliou – Animal Pairs
Animal Pairs is a memory game and we know that all kids love memory. It is the perfect toy for one or more kids because it will definitely entertain them and train their minds. Animal Pairs memory is one of the best choices for traveling because it is not too small and it is not made from cardboard. Every drawing is made on the wood which makes is easier to turn and harder to lose. With this game, you will get 16 wooden tiles, divided into 8 pairs. When your kids are tired or don’t want to play it anymore you can grab the tiles and put them in the matching bag.
Spot it is a game which can help your kid train their mind and it is similar to the memory game. In the game, you will get 55 cards and each card has a dozen drawings on it. Some drawings are repeating on the cards and the goal of the game is to find them. The game will help your kid develop his visual and observational skills which mean – eyes for the details! The cards are round and a size of a coaster so they aren’t easy to lose. Just like the memory game, you can put them in the bag when the game is over.
Foosball iPad stand
Foosball is a highly addictive game which has got its pocket version a few years ago. It is a perfect combination of real-world foosball table and a virtual one. The foosball stand is a small foosball table with 8 rods in total (4 on each side) and 2 scoring systems. The foosball field is an iPad and your kid (and you) will have so much fun controlling the players on the ipad with actual rods.
Super Dooper Mad Libs
Mad Libs is a boredom crusher for years which makes it a great choice for this list. You don’t need to have any special equipment, expect the pen. Let your kid write their own stories with this entertaining book because it has more than 20 stories inside. When the kid is done, you can all enjoy silly stories and the kid can improve writing and reading skills through fun. Who said that learning isn’t fun?
