Tips for Traveling with Toddlers

This conversation is partnered with our friends at Reviews Bee.

We recently took a road trip with our five children. Before we went, I spent about a week planning what we would need to bring along for them. They range in age from 2 to 10, so I had different needs and wants to meet. I wanted to make the nearly four hour drive without a lot of stops. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on eating out. I also wanted to keep the fighting to a minimum. I pre-planned activities and snacks for our drive. It made everything a lot more bearable!

I had to admit that it was a bit harder to figure out how I was going to keep my 2-year-old entertained. She doesn't like to be in her car seat for long periods. Toddlers also have a shorter attention span. Luckily, looking online gave me lots of ideas for keeping her happy while we were in the car and when we got to our destination. Since I have several kids, I often still practice babywearing my toddler because it helps calm her. It also allows my hands to be free!
