g, we are joining some of our favorite friends to share some tips on traveling with busy toddlers. Today, Devany from Still Playing School
is going to share some amazing tips for traveling with an active toddler
Maybe there are some
children out there who are perfectly content to be confined to a car seat for hours at a time on a road trip. Our kids are currently an active toddler and busy preschooler so just the thought of a drive that extends past a well planned nap time gets me a bit anxious in my own seat as well! I love to be well stocked with engaging and educational activities for my kids so that we can use technology as an absolute last resort when we’ve tired all other options. I’ve rounded up the very best play based learning activities that you can adapt for learning on the go!
Top 10 Tips for Traveling with an Active Toddler
Create personalized photo finger puppets to represent your whole family!
Pull colorful scarves out of a rainbow ball
for fine motor color practice!
Bring along some of your toddler’s favorite books on CD or load them on the Ipod before you leave home.
Snacks! Don’t forget snacks! Every toddler is happier when there are lots of snacks around to keep them full.
