Are you planning a spring break trip with the kids? If so, are you flying to your destination or planning a road trip? Either way, you’ll need these 5 Essentials When Traveling With Kids.

These days, we frequently travel with the grandkids and I’ve perfected everything we need while traveling. Thankfully, the grandkids all have great personalities and good manners. Even so, anyone can get cranky on a long trip. I always try to have everything I need for the kids, without overpacking. It’s tough, but it can be done.

5 Must-Haves for Traveling with Kids. Traveling with Kids can be fun and exciting when you have my trusty 5 essentials. #ad

5 Essentials When Traveling with Kids

Backpacks

Each child has his own backpack. I always make sure they don’t overpack their favorite games and toys. I don’t want to lug around their backpack, so I check behind them to make sure their backpack isn’t loaded full of favorite rocks.

Wet Wipes

I don’t like sticky hands! I never leave the house without wet wipes for the kids and myself. Hey, I make messes too.

Surprise Activity Packs

My daughter always makes sure the kids have a surprise activity pack when we’re traveling. When we all went to St. Maarten, it didn’t take long for the kids to get bored on the plane. My daughter whipped out those activity packs and suddenly, the kids had all new games to play, books to read and new things to explore. It kept them busy until the plane landed.

Healthy Snacks

Let’s face it, kids get hungry while traveling. This is not the time to fill them full of sugar. Think string cheese, granola bars, dried fruit and trail mix. Just say no to snacks that melt and are too messy.

mifold® – the Grab-and-Go Car Booster Seat®

Once a child is at least four years old and reaches 40 pounds, he can graduate to a booster seat. My youngest grandson is booster seat age and I’ve found the best booster seat ever.

Traveling with Kids

 

mifold is more than 10x smaller than a regular booster seat and just as safe. It’s compact, portable and easily fits in a glove compartment of a car or a backpack for the plane. It’s the most advanced booster seat ever invented. Instead of lifting the child to position the adult seat belt, mifold adapts the belt to the child.

I love the mifold booster seat because it’s comfortable, adjustable, durable and fast. The Quick Clip™ allows quick and easy adjustment for children of all sizes, from the age of four all the way up to 12.

Also, mifold comes in a variety of colors from Perfect Pink to Taxi Yellow. How about Lime Green? There is also Slate Grey and Pearl Grey.

What did Tegan think about the mifold Grab and Go Booster Seat? The first words out of his mouth were, “It’s so comfortable! May I keep it?” Of course, you can!

Whether you’re planning a road trip or a plane trip, be sure and keep these essentials on hand when traveling with kids.

  1. I haven’t heard of this grab and go seat but perhaps it is all of our grandchildren are still in regular baby or booster seats. Backpacks, snacks, wipes and everyone brings their own water bottle.

    Snacks, snacks and more snacks. Hungry kids are cranky kids, so we always have lots of snacks on hand for the kids.

  3. That would be perfect for my youngest. Even though she’s going to be 9, she doesn’t weight anywhere close to not being in a booster seat. I always pack each their own backpack as well.

  4. Oh this grab and go seat sounds perfect for when I pick up my 2 nieces and nephew, he’s still young and needs a booster seat! And yes wipes are always on hand!

  5. That is the neatest booster seat! Where was this when my kids were smaller?? I love how easy it is to take for trips.

  6. This would be perfect for plane trips with our granddaughter when she gets a little older. Bigger booster seats can be a pain to carry on.

  7. My grandchildren are still young so they are still in their baby car seats. I will have to check on Mifold too. You know how fast these kids grow! Pretty soon, we’ll be needing this.

  8. Ah! All of this takes me back. Well not too far back anyway. Only a couple of years ago my daughter had to be in the booster seat. But even to this day, having snacks is an essential thing.

  9. It looks like he had a great time on the trip! Thank you for the great tips. I’ll remember some of them by the time I have little ones!

  10. I’ll definitely make sure to show this to my nephew and his girlfriend for their daughter. These are great things to keep ready to go with 🙂

  11. Snacks are the best part of road trips 🙂 It does get rough when you are in the car a long time. My kids have long been out of the car seat stage, but I remember those days. This booster looks really handy.

  12. A travel package of wipes can be very handy to have when going anywhere. Hand sanitizer is also great, for when there’s no soap or if the sink in the public restroom is broken.

  13. My daughter is now all grown up but oh how i remember always having my hands full. there is so many things you have to remember when walking out the door, so much to fit in the car, where was this booster seat when my daughter was little.?

  14. Great tips for traveling with kids. I’m going to be traveling with my grand daughter this weekend and I need to check out the Grab and Go Booster Seat.

  16. Wet wipes are my best friend. I love the idea of each kid having their own bag except I feel like I would end up with all of them sooner or later lol

  17. Bonnie @wemake7 says:

    I love that this seat is so easy to use. I love the backpack idea as well.

  18. Great suggestions! I haven’t heard of this brand before. My kids and I love traveling, a booster seat sounds pretty useful!

  19. These are excellent tips for traveling with kids! Backpacks and activities are a must, and the mifold Grab and Go Booster Seat sounds like a great convenience. Travel on, my friend, and have fun. 🙂

  20. Yes! These are excellent tips! The backpack is so essential with us and is activities and snacks!

  21. Great post and very good tips. I would say activities and snacks are absolutely essentially. Books/activity books can be great too.
