For instance, put some pairs of underwear and extra outfits in the suitcase of your partner, and your partner should do the same.

IPads and portable video players can be great for parents who want their kids to be occupied and busy during their travels.

It is advisable you have some applications on your device that will keep your kids engaged without requiring an internet connection.

You Should Also Consider Non-Tech Toys

You don’t want to solely rely on technology to keep your children engaged during the travel. They can run out battery power, and there are some situations when it is better not to use tech devices. You should try going along with some coloring books, travel versions of Guess Who, story books, wikki Stix, Crocodile Dentist, or magic markers.

Go Along with Snacks

Kids easily get hungry and to keep them from starving and getting fussy; you should plan ahead and carry a lot of nutritious snacks for your kids to keep them going.
