Must-Have Items for Travel with Toddlers
It’s that time of year, Spring Break is upon us. It’s hard enough to keep kids happy for 4 minutes let alone a 4-hour flight. As we prepare to head to Guatemala this weekend we thought we’d pull together our must-have items for surviving airplane travel with our two girls.
Books add weight but we love to bring a few they love from home. They come in handy on the flight and when we arrive at our destination for comfort before bed.
Snacks, snacks and more snacks.
Maybe the most important item to have on travel days. We usually bring PB&J sandwiches and cut up a few apples before we head to the airport. Some of our favorite snack options for travel days are raisins, animal crackers and cheddar bunnies.
Change of clothes
I don’t know about you but we rarely carry change of clothes in our diaper bag anymore and if I do they are definitely not the right size. One moment of turbulence can cause a spill all over your toddler and I know my daughter would not be ok sitting in wet pants for very long. Throw in an extra outfit for each kid just to be safe.
Airplane travel can be exhausting but hopefully these items will help you survive your next flight slightly less traumatized.
