The Best Travel STEM Toys for Kids

Travel enriches kids' minds. It helps them to see the world around in broader and brighter colors. Through travel, children learn more about their surroundings than textbooks or descriptions.
While doing all the traveling, you also need to keep their curious minds and wandering hands occupied. There are many different types of toys and games that you can take a long to keep things fun while traveling. STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) toys make that much more interesting and educational for the little travelers. Also, according to studies, STEM type of toys that encourage creativity and imagination and are better at keeping toddlers occupied than other toys and add up to less screen time then phones and tablets.

The “T” in STEM is for Technology. So we need to include one of the best tablets on the market in this list, the All-New Fire HD 10 Kids Edition.

In terms of longevity, this tablet will probably be one of your best investments. It can be used for kids aged from 3 to 12. It also comes with an array of parental controls that you can use to customize the content that your toddler can access.
This tablet comes with a robust kid-proof case so that you don’t have to worry about your kiddo dropping it on the ground. Not only that but Amazon provides a 2-year guarantee so that if your toddler breaks the tablet, they will replace it for free, no questions asked. It comes with a year’s subscription of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited which gives your child access to 15,000 educational apps, games, books, movies and TV shows. Thereafter, the monthly subscription is only a few dollars.

I love this game, and now my kiddo loves it too. It is easy to set up and can be packed up compactly for travel. It is a lot of fun to play as kids are developing logic skills, thinking ahead, winning and losing strategy, and even imagination play that can take the game beyond its designation.

The latest toy I can't wait to try, I mean, for my kid to start playing while we are traveling, is Jumpin' by Smart Games. We saw this game when we were in the Peddler's Village during one of our family travel getaways. As we were wandering through the stores we saw these and made a note of them. She got the game for her birthday. It is a challenging strategy game that is for kids and adults. It comes in a case with a lid making it convenient for taking along.

Additional fun entertaining and no mess travel activities:

Water Wow
My kiddo loves these "magic" coloring books. All you need is water to make the paintbrushes draw on reusable pages. She has drawn in the same books over and over. It is fun for kids and adults as I like to make the color appear on the pages as well. And then you watch them clear up as the water dries up and becomes blank canvas once again.

Crayola Color Wonder
Similarly to Water Wow, these are also coloring magic. This set uses markers that only draw within the pages in the booklet and nowhere else. Great for road trips or coloring in a restaurant as it leaves no mess afterward on any of the surfaces.
