Coming to you from the other side of a very successful 20+ hour road trip with TWO kids (aged 3 and 1). HONEY! The research I did leading up to this trip was lengthy but absolutely the source of the rides success.
Before I get into the nitty gritty (and Amazon links to the items that saved us!) I want to define what success is to me. Success with kiddos (and parents!) on a car ride are kids that are well-fed, entertained and well-rested! Seems simple, right?

Things to Consider
Think about your kids and their interests–what do they find themselves interested in? Books? Games on a tablet? Coloring? Stacking blocks?
For Titus, aged 3, he is an avid reader and also loves to draw/write. For Phoenix, aged 1, he is a fiddler (loves to poke things!) and stacking large blocks. Below you’ll find where to purchase these helpful items! Most of these items are under the $20 price range which was an added bonus!
- Fidget Popper (Quantity: 2)
- Magnetic Drawing Board
- Travel Activity Table
- Magnetic Letters Kit
- Tegu Magnetic Baby Blocks
- Cup Bungee
- Toddler Neck Pillow
I hope this list helps you champion your next road trip with toddlers. Until next time!
