You definitely don’t want to start an exciting trip with a load of stress! Planning is your best friend in these situations! The first and best thing you can do is pack early and have a general itinerary of when to leave, take breaks, etc! Packing for yourself is hard enough, so with a few extra suitcases to prepare, we suggest making a list of everything you need, so that you don’t overpack or forget anything! Plan ahead to have fun in the moment!

Bring Electronics

There’s something magical about a phone or tablet screen that captures a little one’s attention for literal hours. Whether it’s their favorite movie or a new game, electronics can help keep your kids entertained during a long flight or road trip. Don’t forget the portable chargers to recharge!

A New Toy

Your little one will be so intrigued by the novelty of their new favorite toy! It’ll steal their focus from the stress of traveling. It’s a win-win for the kids and for mom! You don’t have to spend tons on an electronic, just something compact enough to pack onto a flight or play in a car!

Tons of Snacks

There’s nothing worse than hangry kids on a vacation. Pack a variety of their favorite snacks to keep them full and happy for that long trip ahead! Don’t forget to sneak in a few of your favorite bites to keep you powered up!

Just in Case

Of course, on vacation nothing should go wrong, but that’s definitely not always the case. Packing a mini first aid kit with bandaids, aspirin, allergy meds, and motion sickness pills can be a real lifesaver. You definitely don’t want to feel underpacked when your kids are feeling under the weather. Fingers crossed you won’t need them, but pack these precautionary meds just in case!
