Traveling with Kids

Ever packed for a trip with young children? Gone are the days of "packing light" since you never know when you might need the Children's Motrin, boots, an extra pair of pants....the list goes on. Traveling by plane makes packing even more complicated. But once on the road (or sky) there are a few essentials that will make the trip easier for parents and kids.
1) Books on Audible. My favorite app for traveling with kids young and old since Audible carries narrated books for all ages. Even I enjoy listening to the Pinkalicious  and the Diary of A Wimpy Kid book series and best of all, it keeps the peace for an hour or two while traveling.
2) Legos. Carrying even a small assortment in a tupperware container allows kids to put those restless hands to use, especially when confined to small spaces during travel.
3) And when all else fails at the restaurant, there's Toca Boca, from Sweden, a play studio that makes digital toys for kids ages 3 and up. Unlike a lot of the game apps, Toca apps are designed to stimulate imagination and creative play that's even fun for parents.
