Spring Vacationing with Toddlers

Carter's is having an awesome sale this March. Snag lots of great outfits for your little ones!

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

This spring, my fam and I have a few fun trips planned, one of which includes a LONG road trip San Louis Obispo. Traveling with a toddler can be challenging to say the least, but the right tips, tools, and attire can make it a heck of a lot easier.

Check out my list below of the top “must haves” for a toddler’s packing list:

  1. Healthy, Travel Friendly Food!
    • Organic Fruit & Veggie Food Packets– I won’t try to sell you on a particular brand here, but I’ve linked to a page on Amazon with lots of different options. You can also snag these at most of you local chain grocery stores! These little packs are amazing for travel, and a good way to get your kiddo some fruits and veggies without having to deal with packing a bunch of food that will likely get smashed in a bag.  P’s got these down to a science and can suck them down in a matter of seconds!
    • Finger food snacks; I like to bring Little Duck Organics Tiny Freeze Dried Fruit Snacks!
  2. Great Travel Toys
    • Play n’ Go Travel Tray–  P loves this thing and is at the perfect stage to start exploring things with her little fingers. She likes to zip and unzip, buckle and unbuckle, check herself out in the mirror, slide items back and forth. This toy is good for kiddos 6 months and older, and fits onto a highchair or airplane tray table nicely, and can also tie to the back of a car seat or onto a car seat directly.
    • Melissa & Doug K’s Kids Take-Along Shape Sorter– This is another of P’s favs. It’s super easy to take on the go because all the shapes fit into the small lunchbox-sized carrier. It’s great for P’s sensory and motor development and super easy to slip in the diaper bag to take with us on the go.  I’d recommend not pulling this guy out on the plane if you have a kiddo that likes to throw or habitually drop things… you might be in for a lot of apologies and airplane toy pick-up. But it’s great for the car and an easy toy to have with you in the hotel or wherever you stay away from home.
    • Munchkin Travel Flash Cards– These guys are a fun distraction, especially for kids ready to start flipping pages. P particularly enjoys the mirror on the front cover of this flashcard set, and she’s just now entering the stage where she likes to flip through each page and point at the object while I read her the word. There isn’t anything fancy about these cards, but they are small and easy to tote around… so they are definitely worth a shot!
    • Fisher Price Toddler Tablet– This toy was a lifesaver in airports and in the car. I kept it from her while we were on the plane since it makes noise and I didn’t want to annoy anyone, but for our layovers and car rides, it was my go to!
  3. Carter’s Spring 2017 Line Clothing– Carter’s makes it SUPER easy to keep little ones both cute and stylish this spring!
