We are fresh off of a 7+ hour road trip (one way!) with both of the boys over a long weekend to celebrate with my dad’s family at a reunion.
When heading out on a long trip with little ones, there are a few things that can potentially make your ride a little smoother.
Here are a few of my go-to items:
Diono Stow N’ Go Backseat Car Organizer: Stuff always ends up everywhere in the car when you are traveling, so it’s nice to have some sort of organization going on in the backseat. This one has seven full-sized pockets and two drink holders in a washable, waterproof fabric. #teamorganized
Skip Hop Changing Station: Changing kiddos in gross gas station bathrooms and random McDonald’s is just part of the whole “experience”, so I’m glad I always have this with me to put down on changing tables or (ewwww) floors when necessary.
Kidz Gear Headphones: It’s great when we can get Ev to watch a movie with headphones on because then I don’t have to hear Josh Groban sing “If you just believe” a thousand times.
Diono Travel Pal Storage: Designed to keep books and toys neat and organized, this bin helps corral all of our random toys that end up in the back seat.
RCA Dual Screen Mobile DVD Player: For long car rides, some screen time is a must for us. We have similar DVD players in my SUV and Everett loves to watch The Polar Express (one million times) when we are on the road.
Paint by Sticker book: This book of colorful stickers was just suggested to me and I think it would be the perfect workbook for in the car/on the go.
Vtech Touch and Swipe phone: Fitzie loves all of his Vtech gear, but the handheld phone is one of his faves. This definitely helped during our long ride to Hays this past weekend…when it didn’t end up thrown down the side of seat.
