Are you going away this school holiday’s? Are you prepared for your adventure? Travelling with kids can be a daunting task, whether you are travelling by car, plane, sea there is no escape when the kids are yelling “Are we there yet?”
Here are our Top 5 Travelling Tips which can be adapted for any travelling adventure.
1 – Quiet Time. Here are some popular books to keep the kids quiet
- Peppa Pig’s Family Buggy Book $9.99
- Hootabelle Delux Colouring Book $5.95
- In The Night Garden – Wiggle and Giggle Finger Puppet Book $16.95

Or you can go for some cheap notepad and sticker books.
2 – Snacks. I’ve found this cute Elephant Lunchbox from “Little Bento Shop“. Why not fill it with some of these healthy snacks: suntana’s, cereal, rice crackers, Tiny Teddies, Popcorn, picklets, dried fruit and a Pop drink.
3 – Games. Why not try something a bit different with travelling games… Check out the “I Spy Bag” from MollyDagMade $24.95,
or try some FREE games with: Pick out the “Coloured Cars”, “I Spy With my Little Eye” or this awesome “Cardboard Racing Track”
4 – Plastic Bags, Always keep a stash of plastic bags for rubbish in the car.
5 – Little Surprises for positive reinforcement. Start your trip on a positive note and reinforce good behaviour. Why not head into your local $2 shop and purchase a few little surprises. For the girls some play braclets & necklaces, Fairy wands. For the boys some play cars and trucks. As a very special reward have their favourite DVD on standby.
For the kids who get motion sickness, we have found these amazing “Psi bands”
For the parents: remember to stop at a park half way there, give the legs a stretch, let the kidlets have a play and swap drivers!
Enjoy your holidays,
