On the Go Play 'n Snack Tray
Multitasking is standard on a road trip. Keeping your eyes on the road, determining directions either through GPS, or even more distracting, smartphone, and keeping another eye on the kids and keeping them entertained. On the Go Play 'n Snack Tray makes it a bit easier. It puts a lot of their books, pencils, toys, and other fun stuff within their reach. This travel gadget also acts as a table for playing with all those toys and for coloring books. It can also be used as a food tray when it is time for a snack. It is waterproof so it can handle spills and wipes clean for prolonged use. Tray is made of foam and it easily attaches to car seats and folds flat for space-saving storage.
Handheld games can be a great way to occupy kids' time while travelling. The games usually come in simple plastic casing making them portable and also less expensive if they go flying across the back seat by "accident".
Type of the games that these might include are word searches, jumbles, scavenger hunts, puzzles, and speed mazes. So they would be learning at the same time as they are playing. Brainteaser games are great for trips as they keep kids busy for longer period of time and develop their brains at the same time.
Perplexus is one of those games that is enticing and mentally stimulating puzzle.
Travel size games are easy to pack and transport. Best of these are the ones that have multiple games in one. This way you do not have to drag several different variations, they are easily switchable, and would keep the rascals occupied for longer. Four Children's Card Games, for instance, has 4 different card games within one package. It has Old Maid, Animal Rummy, Hearts, and Crazy Eights classic card games.
A Backseat Survival Kit, as the name implies, helps keep parent sane. It has quite a bit of activities packed into it. Includes 6 non-toxic water-based felt-tip pens, 6 skeins of floss, a pair of dice, 1 string loop, 8 foam Parchesi playing pieces, a 100 page activity pad.
Can't find your keys before the road trip, the toddler probably has them. Replace them with Electronic Metal Keychain Toy which looks quite a bit like the real thing and has three smooth, metal, teething-safe keys, plus a push-button remote that makes car sounds, a penlight and belt clip.
There is also now a whole market for kid-friendly tablets available so that they can have same gadget as the grown ups. While they might look like the full version tablets they are designed with kids in mind. They come with parental controls that limit what content is accessible and deactivates in-app purchases.
