Baby Travel Tips – Playing…

●Hide a few toys and books before your trip. Your baby or toddler will be happy to see old favourites while en route.

●Wrap the toys you’re bringing along. This means extra fun for baby and extra time with each toy.

●Bring along a large sheet or blanket if headed to the beach. You can spread in the shade for sand-free play or a nap.

●Traveling may be the time to bust out the smartphone or fancy watch and let baby finally play with it – supervise closely!

●New toys for the trip needn’t be expensive. Dollar stores are great for small trinkets and it’s no tragedy if the toys are lost or broken.

●If there’s a dearth of play areas in the airport, the movator can be your best friend.

●Learn about your destination and connect with the culture by chatting with local parents at a playground. Thanks to Google Maps and free wifi – you can easily find a park near you, wherever you are!

● Consider your child’s temperament before boarding the plane. Hard to calm down? Stick to quiet activities at gate.

● Put crayons in a clear make-up bag for travel. You can see all the colours easily and there’s no awkward cramming back in box.

●Whatever you do, don’t forget the charger. (Or spare batteries)

    Ahh great tips for getting out and about with baby. I love the tip about the sheet. It is so tempting to take too many toys when travelling with baby I guess. One tip Ive found is that hotels always have something that can be used in the bath to fill up with water and tip out – no need to take bath toys.

  3. I’d say let the baby play with the smartphone before the fancy watch 🙂
    Great tips as always!

  4. Great tips! I don’t have kids, but I like the idea of wrapping the toys too add another activity–that’s a great idea! We always bring a sheet to the beach as well–it’s nice to have a big space to rest!
